Old Boys Association

For 100 years there has been an Old Boys’ Association. However, with rapidly diminishing numbers, it eventually became obvious it could not sustain support for an AGM, an Annual Dinner and the cost of distributing a Newsletter.

Select item to view:

In 2019 the OBA membership was consulted about closing the Association and the result overwhelmingly confirmed the Committee’s suggestion to dissolve the Association. This was to be done in 2020 with a final celebration of 500 year history of the school and the 100 year anniversary of the founding of the Association.  Unfortunately, this celebratory AGM and Dinner were postponed due to the Pandemic but the AGM was held as a virtual meeting on Zoom when all Committee members took part. The Association was formally dissolved after the decision was overwhelmingly endorsed by the membership.


Valedictory Dinner

A final Valedictory Dinner was held at Branston Golf Club on 12th September, 2022. This was thoroughly enjoyed by all 62 attending Old Boys. This included Richard Wain whose father HJ Wain was key in setting up the Association in 1920!


Continuing to stay in touch
2020 – Until this date, an annual Newsletter had been either emailed or posted to the whole OBA membership. To keep up with modern practice and legislation, it was decided to retain only those alumni who gave their consent to remaining on a database kept by the emeritus Editor, Eric Bodger.

If any Old Boy wishes to receive future newsletters and has not already given his consent to remaining on record, they can contact Eric Bodger at bgs@cicsplex.co.uk to give their approval and they will then go on the database. In doing this, he is being assisted by Graham Marshment. graham@gmarshment.f9.co.uk

Eric and Graham have offered to do this for as long as they are able and for as long as material is submitted to either of them.
