Old Olavians

Old OlaviansWelcome to the Old Olavian community, the purpose of which is to ensure that St Olave's alumni, alumnae and staff can keep in touch with their school and with one another via a range of social and cultural opportunities, and to ensure that current Olavians can benefit from the expertise, support and advice of their predecessors.

Once an Olavian, always an Olavian. 

The Old Olavians Society was set up in 1882 and its purpose remains just as relevant today, namely, in bringing together Old Olavians, both former pupils and staff, for the furtherance of personal friendships and the maintenance of support and loyalty to St Olave’s Grammar School.  The members provide support through their voluntary annual subscription or larger one-off donations.  Some also mentor current students, or provide interview practice, work experience, etc.  The aim of the Society and LinkedIn pages is to forge connections with Old Olavians who have already trodden the career path that a recent leaver or indeed sixth form student may be considering, offering valuable insight and introductions. The Society continues to organise a number of events and activities each year. The Society's Website and its Facebook page both show future events, and photographs, to ensure as many Old Olavians as possible can keep in touch.
