Old Orwellians

Celebrating 150 Years 1868 – 2018

In this 150th year of the School, celebrating from the early days in Aldeburgh to the eventual move in 1937 to Orwell Park and to the present day, there have been a number of events to which Old Orwellians, from all years, have been invited:  a Commemoration Service in Aldeburgh Church,  a reception at the House of Lords, a recital at St Mary, Abchurch in the City of London and the 150th Anniversary Ball on the 16th June and the School’s Summer Concert was celebrated at Snape Maltings on the 29th June.

We are delighted to announce the publication of the history of Orwell Park:  Orwell Park School, a Celebration of 150 Years by Edwina Langley.  For more information about the book, please contact or telephone 01473 653274.

There is an active Old Orwellian community enjoying reunions both at School and at other locations, such as London.

  • The Half Century Club is a club which Old Orwellians are invited to join when their date of leaving the school is over fifty years ago.  There is a lunch once a year specifically for the Half Century Club which is held alternately in London or at school in November.
  • We hold an Old Orwellian day in June, a golf day in May and a biannual art exhibition and concert for Old Orwellians.  We also hold decade reunions in London.
  • An Old Orwellian newsletter is published twice a year.  Contributions and news from Old Orwellians are always welcome.  Copies of recent newsletters may be found below:


We welcome informal visits from Old Orwellians, please do contact the school to make an appointment.  For more information please contact the Old Orwellian Secretary,  Sarah Kirby-Smith on or 01473 653274.
