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. 

This year we commemorate 453 years since the Royal Charter for our School. This will be commemorated on Thursday 2 May 2024.

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.

The Order of Service from our last Commemoration is viewable below:
