We are blessed to have the dedication of the Pate’s Society committee members Maggie Cowie (nee Sully, arr 1962) and Rob Rimell (arr 1963,) who manage the Archives as volunteers, coming in on Wednesday mornings during term time.  We are immensely grateful to them for their help with recording and maintaining our Archives, promoting the facility to alumni and assisting with school reunions. 

We collect any material concerning the history of the school - programmes, brochures, photographs, school reports, uniform, badges etc. and we would be grateful for donations of Pate’s memorabilia from across the years to enhance our collection.  Please do email us if you discover something that you would like to either donate or share with us in photos on email providing details of its history, especially its dates. We look forward to seeing what treasures you find!
