House Societies help friends to stay in touch, provide a direct link back to the current Housemaster and provide a way of keeping alive the traditions and eccentricities associated with a particular House! We hope they provide a way for OWW to celebrate and share their memories and hear about how their predecessors are doing.
Full details of all forthcoming House Society events can be found in the events list on the right hand side of the page. Currently all House Societies are actively seeking OWW to help organise events so if you would be willing to be involved or if you would like more information about this please email firstname.lastname@example.org. All OWW should automatically receive details of the activities of their House Society as long as the School has their contact details. To update your contact details please click here.
