Events for Gordonians and friends
The Development Office organises various events throughout the year for Gordonians and friends. As well as supporting the Gordonian Association with all of the annual dinners, we are here to ensure former pupils can keep in touch. If you have moved house recently or changed your email please let us know.
The reunion programme allows 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.
Please find below a list of the 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."
