Old Edwardians Association

The Old Edwardians Association (OEA) was founded in 1883 to "promote union and good fellowship among all old pupils of and others connected with the School of King Edward the Sixth in Birmingham".

Keeping Old Edwardians in touch with each other and the school remains central to the OEA. Former pupils of King Edward's School automatically become members of the OEA.

Regular communications

Keep up-to-date with news from the school and other OEs through the Old Edwardian Gazette magazine, quarterly e-zine and the OEA website.

Events and reunions

There is a varied programme of events for Old Edwardians every year including year group reunions, a lecture at Oxford or Cambridge, festive drinks at the German Market in Birmingham and a London pub night.

Keeping in touch

Stay in touch through the Old Edwardians Facebook page and LinkedIn. You can also search for contact details of former classmates via a password protected section of the OE website.

Careers advice

Access the OE Careers Network to find mentors for specific careers, apply for internships offered by Old Edwardians, and offer careers advice to current pupils.

Merchandise

A range of merchandise featuring the school crest is available including ties, pen sets, cufflinks, golf umbrellas, pin badges, whisky tumblers and postcards.

Fundraising

The OEA also raises money for the Assisted Places Fund, which aims to ensure the school remains accessible to all boys of ability, whatever the financial circumstances of their family. Since 2009, over £6 million has been raised, from 1,000 donors, to fund 60 Assisted Places from September 2014. In June 2014, the Assisted Places 100 (AP100) Campaign was launched, with the ambition to raise £10 million to fund 100 Assisted Places by 2017. Find out more about the Campaign.
