We’re delighted to announce that The SDS Group (Education & Heritage) will be sponsoring this year’s conference and will be taking an exhibition stand at Prior Park College where you can chat to them about their digital archiving solutions.

The SDS Group (Education & Heritage) has a wide range of ICT services all centred around the scanning and indexing of rare, precious & confidential document archives with full search and retrieval database solutions via websites. We specialise in the digitation of school heritage records including magazines, registers, RollofHonour, photographs, architectural plans & drama/concert programmes. We also digitise every type of administrative document that flows through a school including student/staff/bursar/estates and Governor’s Minutes.

Every system/solution and website is bespoke and designed to individual requirements and always within the corporate identity of the school.

We are now working with over 250 independent schools (inc. Eton, Harrow, Rugby, Charterhouse). Our corporate clients include Oxford University, BBC, John Lewis Partnership, NEXT, ORACLE and British Museum/Library.
