Using this Guide

This is a guide to sources at the BRO for schools in the Slough area. It is arranged in alphabetical order of civil parish, and then by the different kinds of record available. The references after each entry should be quoted if you would like to see that item. For more information, please look up the reference in the appropriate catalogue. Please note that BRO does not hold individual pupil records or exam results. If you would like to visit the office to carry out your research, please make an appointment. Please see also our Planning Your Visit leaflet for more information.

At CBS means the documents are at the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies and are not held at BRO.

Note on Closure Access to documents containing personal information is usually restricted to a minimum of 50 years after the last entry in a document. If you wish to see a restricted item please ask a member of staff.
