Over the years, the former Chelsea School developed a precious resource of thousands of photos, video footage, course booklets, newsletters and student uniforms. We also have a rich living history which we risk losing if we do not take the opportunity to chronicle the experiences and memories of our alumni and staff.
We want to enhance the existing archive by developing an oral strand, capturing the voices and real life stories of those who lived and breathed the Chelsea experience. This would be a unique record, securing the personal history of the development of physical education and sport, and providing not only a fascinating insight into a history we all share, but also a rich source for research and development in the future.
We also want to capture the history of the former School of Service Management and the developments of the more recently formed School of Sport & Service Management.
