The Old Palace Alumnae (OPA)


The Old Palace Association is over 100 years old. It was formed to allow past pupils to re-connect with one another, enjoy regular events and remember their time at Old Palace.

The Association is run by an enthusiastic group of dedicated committee members, who also produce a regular newsletter featuring articles by alumnae, along with news and details of forthcoming events. We host an annual event for Year 7 pupils, who like all current pupils, become associate alumnae when they join us at the Senior School.
