When staff and pupils leave the College they become members of the Old Viking Society (OVS). The OVS is a highly active, welcoming and inclusive alumni society. Reunions, dinners, sports fixtures and social events are regularly hosted at the College and further afield. These include the OVS Sports Festival which takes place in September, whilst every December Old Vikings from across the decades gather in London for a rip-roaring reunion.

The society strives to support all Old Vikings across the globe to re-connect and engage with each other and the College itself. Please do not hesitate, therefore, to get in touch should there be anything with which the society may be able to assist.

The annual OVS magazine packed full of news, photos and information is delivered to Old Vikings across the globe in February, and regular newsletters and updates are also communicated via email. Please ensure you have subscribed to the Old Vikings’ mailing list.

We are delighted to share the Old Viking Society’s online community, OVS LIVE. The site is a great way for Old Vikings to continue to be involved with the Shiplake community, providing an ideal platform to keep in touch or re-connect with former contemporaries, hear about reunions and events, share photos and network to open up business opportunities.
