Membership of the Old Bordenian Association is open to the following:
☆ All those whose names have appeared on the roll of Borden Grammar School;
☆ Past and present members of the teaching staff of the school;
☆ Past and present members of the School’s Governing Body.
The objects of the Association are:
☆ To hold reunions, to foster good fellowship and a corporate spirit amongst members;
☆ To arrange sports and various activities for the members through recognised sections, whose members should normally be members of the Association
☆ To assist the School and its organisations financially and in practical ways.
We arrange an annual Reunion Dinner at the School (although this has had to be paused during the Coronavirus pandemic) and publish news and articles from Members on our website and Facebook pages.
All of our officers are Old Bordenians and volunteers, who give their time and skills freely to do their best to keep the Association running.
Officers and Committee Members are elected annually at the Annual General Meeting, to which all Old Bordenians are welcome. This is normally held in September, and announced on our website.
Membership of the Association is now free. Instead of subscriptions, we invite donations to raise the funds which allow the Association to support the School. We are thankful for all regular annual and lump-sum contributions, no matter how large or small. For example, £15 per-Member per-year would allow us to fund the provision of a minibus for the pupils of the School, into the future.
Donations can be arranged by Standing Order, eBanking Payment, Paypal or Cheque.
We also welcome offers of practical help from Old Bordenians.
