“As all historians know, the past is a great darkness, and filled with echoes.”
– Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale
All too often, history records the “big stuff” whilst the small details that give us the feel and flavour of an era are lost to time. To make sure we record our own “small stuff,” the Surbiton Archive is a new space created to preserve our students’ observations of the world around them so that future generations of Surbiton pupils can understand a little more of what it was like to live in another age.
Selection for the Archive has been highly competitive and only the very best pieces of writing have been included. Make yourself a cup of tea, sit back and immerse yourself in our students’ observations about the world in 2014.
