The Spirit of Parkside is a strong and clear bond between each member of the Parkside community. This is no more apparent than within the Old Boys’ Association where membership dates all the way back to 1979; when the school first moved to Stoke D’Abernon. Old Boys say that Parkside has always held a special place in their hearts and memories, long after their final term drew to a close.
This unique bond between the Old Boys, the School and those associated with it makes the OBA what it is today; with its strong roots in friendship, support and fond memories.
We are incredibly proud of all of our Old Boys and what they have gone on to achieve. They have helped to shape Parkside aims and continue to be an invaluable resource supporting the rich and vibrant community we enjoy today at the School.
The Old Boys’ Association volunteers time, advice, services and support to the current School community. In fact, their support and donations recently helped fund the building of a beautiful new Cricket Pavilion for the School.
The OBA isn’t just for the Old Boys! We would like to invite as many Parkside parents and teachers to join the Association too. We know that parents and teachers contribute so much to the Spirit of Parkside, and make so many great life-long friendships along the way. The Old Boys’ Association provides an opportunity to join together with new friends and old.
We are always delighted to welcome back our Old Boys, former staff and former parents to look around the School. To make the most of your visit, we ask that you contact us beforehand to make an appointment via email (or telephone 01932 862749). This will ensure we can set aside dedicated time to show you around.
Old Boys are valued members of our community and we would love to share your news such as success at senior schools, university, careers since, reunions with other former pupils or simply reflections on your past days at Parkside.
It is so easy to connect with Parkside as an Old Boy or to join the Old Boys’ Association Committee, which helps to shape the direction of the Old Boys’ Association of the future.
We would love to send you our newsletters and invite you to reunion events throughout the year.
