On this page are the details of which editions of The Gazette, The School Magazine, The Ottershaw Weekly News and Acorn are available from our online libraries.

The Gazette

The Gazette Library holds virtually all editions apart from  Nos 1,2 ,8 and 11.
Also we have editions 1-5 of the early society newletters.

 

The Ottershaw Weekly News & Acorn

In the OWN and Acorn Library,  copies of OWN are arranged in batches by school year with all the available copies for a particular year contained within a single PDF file.

We have to thank the SCC Archive for allowing us to scan their entire collection of OWN and also to Old Boys Roger Chesher, Peter White, Colin Blowers and the late Keith Douglas for letting us have access to their personal collections. Also the OSOBS archive has contributed many editions and together these  have produced a  near complete set of OWN.

(No. 770 is not actually missing - the number was never used and the series jumped from 769 to 771;  and No. 768 is wrongly numbered as 767)

It seems OWN may have finished at this point and Acorn took over for 1972 - or are we missing further editions?

We are still missing just a few editions of OWN – CAN YOU HELP FILL THE GAPS?  and help us find the following :
Numbers 568  605  642  643  644  647  650  652  659  662  &  738.
