The Old Grovian Reunions that are organised over the year are always very well attended and often very lively affairs!
Each December, we hold a Leavers’ reunion for our newest Old Grovians, who are invited to return to school to catch up with friends and chat about their first term away from The Grove. Throughout the year, we host a variety of regional events and lunches and a Golf day and Dinner.
Towards the end of June, we host our annual Old Grovians Summer Reunion and Family Funday.
This reunion has evolved over the years into a much-loved family event where Old Grovians join with staff, current pupils and their families to enjoy a glorious weekend packed with cricket, tennis, children’s entertainment and music. Set in the beautiful grounds of Woodhouse Grove, this is a wonderful celebration to close the Academic Year.
The London 2016 Reunion was held at Doggetts Coat & Badge, London on Thursday 29th September. It was an absolutely fantastic venue on Blackfriars Bridge with great views across the city.
Old Grovians young and old joined us for drinks and a light buffet; some came for a drink after work and others stayed till the early hours of Friday morning. We were delighted to be joined by Old Grovian (1938-47) Geoffrey Newton on his 87th Birthday. Roger Howard (Chairman of the OGA) welcomed all our guests and encouraged everyone present to come back next year and bring another Old Grovian with them.
