Administrative/Biographical history:

Streatham College for Girls was originally called Streatham High School when it opened in May 1886. It was opened by a Miss van Dordt and was located in Gleneldon Road, Streatham. In 1889 the school moved to The Shrubbery in Streatham High Road. Miss Amy Lefroy was the school's second headmistress from May 1989 until July 1929. In July 1908 the school changed its name to Streatham College for Girls. The third headmistress was Miss A J Broad. The school was closed in July 1933 when the lease on the house could not be renewed.


Scope and content/abstract:

The collection consists of several scrapbooks containing newspaper cuttings, letters, programmes, lists of prize winners and sports team members, and other material. One was compiled by the headmistress Miss Lefroy and contains handwritten entries. There are also photograph albums showing the school, teachers and pupils.
