We hope that every Old Abingdonian considers himself an important part of the wider School community. The Old Abingdonian Club was set up to maintain OAs’ links to the School and to each other, so that both current and past pupils may continue to benefit from their association. All Old Abingdonians are automatic members of the Old Abingdonian Club.
We know that some form of alumni association has been in existence since 1743, when ‘The Gentlemen Educated in Abingdon School' met that year on 6 August. We are now in contact with more than 5,000 Old Abingdonians – a vibrant community spanning several generations.
In line with recent changes to data protection laws, Abingdon has been undertaking a communication preferences exercise with all Old Abingdonians to ensure that we are clear as to what relationship they wish to have with us. This means that you, as an Old Abingdonian, may have received an email, letter or phone call asking you to confirm how you would like to hear from us in the future. If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to email email@example.com or call +44 (0)1235 849098.
The OA Club offers a wide range of activities for OAs:
Annual events include year group reunions, university-based and regional reunions, sporting events and career networking events.
OAs receive Abingdon News (the School's termly newsletter), Griffen (the OA Club's annual magazine), and the OA Club e-Newsletter (sent quarterly).
Many OAs support aspects of the School's Careers Programme by volunteering to help at career events and mock interviews and by hosting internships for L6 pupils.
The work of the OA Club ensures a lifelong network of friendship, advice and support. We hope that you will make the most of what is on offer!
