Established in 1985, the Hutchins Archives serves to collect, document, illustrate, communicate, preserve and display aspects of the School history for the benefit of alumni, our current community and future generations. The Archives functions as the corporate memory of The Hutchins School and its contents are used to support and enhance current decision-making.

The Hutchins Archives and Heritage Collection comprises photographs and audio-visual records, documents, maps and plans, books, magazines and other publications, trophies and honour boards, uniforms and textiles, coins, medals and badges, artworks, furniture, memorabilia and ephemera, some of which pre-dates foundation in 1846, up to the present day.
