AGM 2014
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.

The latest Gazette is now available. In order to reduce the amount of email traffic we create, we attempted a new method of delivery by providing a link to The Gazette on our website. Unfortunately for some people this did not work properly but we now know why this happened and next time there should be no problems. Those who received a working link will now see they have access to our new Gazette Library page which holds copies from Autumn 2004 until the present day. If you are a member and the Gazette link did not work for you but you would like access to our new facilities, please click here to contact our IT manager who will contact you.

For members without e-mail, a printed copy of The Gazette is being sent to you. If you are not a member but would like to know more about The Gazette or see a copy for yourself, please click here to visit our Gazette page.

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.

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

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.
