Keeping in touch

The Alumni Relations Office produces newsletters and events to keep Old Citizens in contact with each other and with the School. These events take the form of reunion lunches, drinks receptions and gala dinners.

If you are an Old Citizen and we do not hold your contact details, please do get in touch so we can keep you up to date with School news and year group reunions. Similarly, let us know if you would like help planning your own reunion. The Alumni Office welcomes news of any kind, so please also keep in touch to let us know of any marriages, births, and important events.

If you would like to contact the Alumni Relations Office, or become a member of the John Carpenter Club, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., to send your details to the Alumni Relations Officer.

We are very lucky to have Alumni who are extremely supportive of the School. Old Citizens provide extensive career and mentoring opportunities to current pupils by offering work experience placements, and by visiting us to give careers talks to the boys. If you are able to help the School with careers advice, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
