Commemoration verses

Commemoration Service

We take great pride in our unique heritage and are grateful to our Founders and Benefactors, who we acknowledge and thank during our annual Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving which is traditionally held in the Southwark Cathedral. 

In 2023 we commemorate 452 years since the Royal Charter for our School.

Our staff, governors, students, musicians, Old Olavians, parents, supporters and clergy join together in May each year, to thank God for those who had the vision to begin this work and for those, who over many years, have continued to pursue and preserve for future generations,  its ideals, values and scholarship, as our Founders intended.
