The College Archivist

Sue Carpenter joined the College in April 2023. Sue is a parent of an Old Pangbournian and is the Alumni Relations Officer and Archivist for the college.

With long experience working with the National Trust, and with prep school archives she is well placed to continue the excellent legacy left to the College and OP Society by Lionel Stephens. His excellence in preserving records dating back to the founding of the College in 1917, means generations to come can continue to enjoy our proud history.

Sue is available to respond to queries, and will happily meet anyone who would like to visit the College Archives, currently held in Devitt House.
