The Garden
First day 1948

WELCOME to the Ottershaw School Old Boys' Society website which has been created for anyone who went to or has an interest in Ottershaw School which opened 1948 and closed 1980 - more.

 Annual or life membership of the Ottershaw School Old Boys' Society (OSOBS) is open to all ex-pupils and staff at the school during any time of its existence.

For any questions or matters relating to membership, please click here to contact Nigel Wright our Membership Secretary.

Please Note : On this site, "OT" is used to refer to people from the the first intake in 1948 to 1967 then "OTT" for people from 1967 to 1979, i.e. the last intake. We know that everyone in reallity was an "OTT" but the society uses this convention to help identify people with the same number from the early and later times of the school more easily.

We recently were informed of the death of former teacher Tom Kennedy - Please click here for more details of his life.

Thanks to John Chapmen, we now have a copy of The Banned 1970 School Photo.

Some further events have been posted on our Events page. Click here to see what they are.

The 2014 AGM and luncheon was a huge success - with more people than ever attending. Luckily a photographic record of the event was taken and has been kindly supplied by Old Boy Mark Toynbee OTT 228. Click here to view.

Some new photos have been added to our Gallery. School photos for 1968 and 1969 have been added in hi res plus a staff photo from the last open day at the School.  We also have an updated photo of the school orchestra from 1967. When you open the photos click on "Original" to view the hi res copy.

The 1960s Old Boys Group, (once known as Oett’s Boys) met on 17th July - a report on that event will appear shortly .If you would like to know more or wish to be added to our mailing list, please click here to contact us or to find out more about us click here.

We often get asked if someone is still alive but sadly but as time passes there are a few less Old Boys around.  We have therefore compiled a list of the more recent deaths which have been notified to us. Please click here to view.

Are you part of an Old Boys' group?  Or do you meet with other Old Boys? If so then why not create a page on our website to tell others of your activities? If you would like to create a page please click here to contact our moderator who will then contact you and help guide you through the process.
