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.
As well as hands on guidance for pupils, the School is fortunate to receive financial support from Old Citizens who contribute to both the Bursary Trust and The Asquith Bursary Fund, ensuring a bursary provision for the future.
