Cardigan’s Second Decade

The Cardigan Archives has a rich collection of media from the School’s past.

As part of Cardigan's 75th Anniversary celebrations, we will be sharing digitized items from our collection throughout 2020-21. On this page you'll find items that reflect life at the School from 1955–1964. If this content brings a part of your own Cardigan experience to mind, we hope you will share a reflection with us.
