2020 Annual Reunion Dinner - date announced

A date for your diaries - the 2020 Annual Reunion Dinner will be held at the School on Saturday 21st March. Booking details and other arrangements will be set out in the New Year. 

Old School site to be sold

It has been reported that the School's old site in Sittingbourne is close to being sold off. Following BGS moving to its current site in 1929, the old school buildings have been used for a variety of uses, latterly an Adult Education College.

World War One events - 2019

As those who studied history at the School will know, the First World War formally ended in 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. As we prepare to mark that final WWI centenary, there have been two noteworthy events to report on. There is also an important date for your diary.

School News

The School provides regular newsletters to the Parents of pupils and we will henceforth reproduce any interesting news on the OBA website. The most recent newsletter was in July, marking the end of the School year.

OBHC Hockey Report

The Old Bordenians Hockey Club is separate from the OBA but we maintain close links. Many Old Bordenians have and continue to play for the Club and the Association has historically supported the Club financial appeals, particularly in regard to the construction of the Club pitches. We also welcome many of the OHBC to our Annual Reunion Dinners.

OB Football Report - a winning year!

The Old Bordenians Football team reported at the 2019 AGM a fantastic 2018-19 season. The OBA provides support through the funding of the team's kit. Their unrivalled exploits are detailed in the Report provided to the OBA AGM and is detailed in this report by Keith O'Shea.

Tony Whibley remembered

Dennis Fowle has contacted the Association to report the recent death of Tony Whibley (1944-52). Although living in Hampshire, Tony maintained friendships with other OBs and attended Dinners as recently as 2018. Dennis has provided this obituary to the OBA.
