Gordon’s came to define me. As a boarder you don’t simply attend lessons – you become woven into the fabric of the School and, in turn, it shapes your outlook for years to come...
Gordon's School alumni association
KNOWN AS THE 'GORDONIANS', WE REPRESENT ALL FORMER STUDENTS AND STAFF OF GORDON'S SCHOOL, WHICHEVER THEIR GENERATION AND WHATEVER THE LENGTH OF TIME SPENT AT THE SCHOOL, OR HOME.
Our purpose is to provide the focus and means by which Gordonians can maintain their link with Gordon’s School and with each other, both within the UK and around the world. We also exist to support the School as well as Gordonians. We work together with the School Governors, The Gordon Foundation, the Head Teacher and the Development Office to maintain the reputation of Gordon’s School and help to ensure its continuing success and prosperity.
When established, the Gordonians operated as a separate association with a chargeable annual membership. However, as it became increasingly clear that many Gordonians felt excluded from Gordonian and School activities due to the subscription structure as well as the will to include all alumni within the Gordon Community, in June 2019 existing Members voted in favour of dissolving the Association. From January 2020, management of Gordon’s alumni relations and activities moved into the School community, specifically the Development Team within The Gordon Foundation. We are confident that this change, particularly removing a paid annual membership, will encourage all Gordonians to feel part of the community regardless of their circumstances.
With the agreement of the membership, management of Gordonian funds has been transferred, with appropriate restrictions, to The Gordon Foundation, with oversight provided by the new Gordonian Advisory Panel. An important function of this Panel is also to oversee the funding and allocation of the provision of the Gordonian Awards, funded from Gordonian funds.
A MESSAGE FROM ONE OF OUR ADVISORY PANEL MEMBERS & FORMER GORDONIAN ASSOCIATION CHAIRMAN, Jay Tamsitt (7311)
'I attended the school between 1966 and 1969. I was a member of the Committee for over 35 years and its Chairman for over 12 years. I have seen many changes within the past few years, not only at the School. By embracing modern technology and social media as a means for ex-students to stay in contact with the School, we now have a growing number of alumni, but we want more of you to re-connect, supporting the Gordon’s School today, coming back for Annual, reunions and the many other events that all Gordonians are welcome to join.
A MESSAGE FROM ONE OF OUR GORDONIANS Harriet Turk nee McGuire (10596)
I attended the school between 2003 and 2008 and as a member of Augusta House. I have fond memories of inter-house competitions, school trips and day-to-day school life. I am the youngest of four siblings who all attended Gordon’s and we all now receive the Gordonian Newsletter throughout the year as well as attending the summer Annual parade where we can re-connect with old school friends. The Gordonian’s website is a great resource when it comes to finding old school friends or knowing when the next events or reunions are. I am currently running my own business and the Business Breakfast Network Meetings are a great way of Gordon’s supporting their alumni, offering us the chance to network in such a familiar environment with other local businesses.
