There are large gaps in some correspondence files.

Records from or about schools

To locate a record from or about a particular school you can perform a basic search. For example, entering ‘Hagley Farm School’ produces not only records received from the School (‘Agency TA1456 Hagley Farm School’) but also records from other agencies such as Public Works Department plans, films and photographs. In this example the list is long. You can narrow the search by clicking the radio button, ‘Boolean Query’. Then you can search only for films by entering ‘Hagley Farm School and film’.
