Step back in time in this free exhibition as you learn about key moments in the life of the City of London School for Girls on its 125th anniversary.
Opened in 1894 and located in the heart of the Barbican since 1969, City of London School for Girls is an independent day school for 7 to 18-year olds. The school provides an outstanding education to able girls from all backgrounds, cultures and faiths.
Marking the 125th anniversary of this unique school, this exhibition explores the history of the school through photographs, artefacts and memories of former pupils, from its evacuation to Yorkshire during World War II, to the pupils’ first cross-channel relay swim from France to Dover.
The Barbican Libraries are located on Level 2 within the Barbican. They can be accessed from the main building via stairs or lifts from Level G or via Frobisher Crescent from the highwalks.
