Reunions have been held every couple of years for the last twenty five years. The last one was on 22nd September 2015 at The Cavalry & Guards Club in Piccadilly, London with 45 old boys and staff attending. Another highly successful event enjoyed by all those who attended.

It is thought that the next reunion will be in about 2 years - watch this space.

The invitation that went out for the most recent reunion was as follows :

Old Boys Reunion 2015
We must also thank Susan Gregory who kindly lent us a replica of the Imperial Shield that we won in 1928 and we had on display at the reunion and which many found interesting.

Photos and lists of Old Boys attending the reunion, 22nd Oct 2013:

This is a combination of two photos hence the odd carpet pattern!

Speaker's view of attended company

The following attended on 22nd October 2013; 54 old boys/staff in total.
These are in the order that they left St Peter's making it easier to find those who were at St Peter's at the same time as you. We have also added where they live so you can look out for those you never knew lived just a couple of miles down the road!
Perhaps you might be kicking yourselves for not attending. By all accounts it was great fun and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
