St Bede's Grammar School


Centenary June 2000

Here are five of the School Magazines from 1925,1939,1950, 1969 and 1975

They are in "pdf" format and need the Adobe Acrobat (free) reader. See below for details on how to obtain it. This reader allows you to search the text for any word or portion thereof. Especially useful for names. Each magasine file includes bookmarks, and thumbnails of each page, which simplify navigation

Each can be simply downloaded and read on-line by clicking the corresponding underlined link. However it is probably better to download the "pdf" file and read it off line. You can do this by RIGHT clicking the link, selecting "Save Target As ..." or "Save Link As ..." and saving the file of the magasine wherever you want

Here are two to start with:

1963 - in PDF Format (119k)

Please let me know what you think, and in particular which format you prefer.

And here is:
