The Newman Heritage Collection 

We have been researching, collating and archiving information about the history of Newman since its first opened as a teacher training college 50 years ago. Together with Bartley Green History Group and our former students we have collected old pictures, artefacts and memories.The heritage project has been set up to assist the University in making copies of its historical materials and make them accessible to others.

All donated photographs and memorabilia can be found online on the Newman University Alumni Association Flickr account.

With the information we have gathered so far we have collated together an exhibition we would like to share with you. Please take a look Newman’s heritage exhibition in PDF format:
