Old School Association

Old School Association

The Old School Association was set up by Alumni who remember Brock when it was a School rather than a College (1913 – 1970).

It enables past students to reconnect with each other, and enjoy events and reunions that explore the institution’s history including an extensive display of photographs and memorabilia from across the years.


Reunions, which are held biennially in even years, usually take place at the College on the third Friday in July (subject to any changes to the College schedule). All former pupils or teachers starting before 1970 are invited to attend.

We have many photos of sports teams, mostly from the 1950s – but very little material from the 1940s or 1960s. If anyone can supply group photos – prefects, drama groups, class groups etc,  we would be pleased to hear from you.

Owing to the passing years, the Organising Committee are keen to recruit younger members to take over; please get in touch if you are interested.

Some unfortunate news…

In March 2016, Colin Andrews, a highly regarded member of the Old Students Association committee sadly passed away. Colin originally joined the Old Students Association in 2004 and with his passion for the history of Brockenhurst College along with the knowledge, ideas and commitment that he bought to the committee, it didn’t take long for him to become a valued member.

Colin was a cheerful, reliable member of the OSA and his dedication was pivotal in the restoration and cataloguing of the ongoing archive collection. He has been described as being greatly admired and his work “invaluable” by his fellow members- he will be sorely missed.
