Research Enquiries on Education Records

The National Archives

The National Archives annually receives thousands of documents relating to the business of government. Part of their mandate is to preserve the records of government departments, the courts and other state agencies which are listed in the Schedule to the National Archives Act, 1986 and to make these records of permanent value available in their Reading Room to members of the public.
