Events and Reunions
The Development Office helps to support and organise a large number of events throughout the year. We are here to ensure former pupils can keep in touch.
Reunions allow Gordonians to get together and celebrate a milestone in time. Our aim is to make your reunion experience as enjoyable as possible and hopefully reignite friendships after many years. The Development Office can help get in touch with classmates and assist with the planning. We share the class list, look for 'lost alumni', design and send the invitations, arrange tours of the College and organise the reunion meal.
Like all events, Reunions often depend on the commitment and enthusiasm from former pupils of that year. If you would like to have a Reunion please do get in touch, we would be delighted to help make your Class Reunion happen.
If you would like to talk about a Reunion for your year group please call Laura Pike on 01224 656838 or email (select Gordonians).
Please find below a list of our Gordonian events. If you would like any further information please call Laura Pike on 01224 656838 or email (select Gordonians).

Feedback from some of our recent reunions:
Thanks again for a great reunion yesterday. I must admit I wasn't sure about attending but I'm so glad I did.
It was really worthwhile to meet up with old chums and see round the school with all its huge changes since our days there.
That was an absolutely brilliant reunion and a fantastic day.
It was wonderful meeting up with old class mates after half a century. The school seems an utterly different place from those days, almost entirely for the better!
I just wanted to say thanks for a great day. I was in two minds about attending but I'm so glad I did. The school I knew was a different animal to the one that exists today, and whilst my school days were not the best, my memories of Saturday are great.
I must admit to having had some misgivings about coming but I am glad I did - I managed to renew old (and I mean old !!) acquaintances and talk over old times.
