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.

APPEAL FOR INFORMATION - we have been contacted by the son of Michael Franklin Howorth, OT 261 of East House who would like to know if anyone recalls his father who started at Ottershaw in 1952 but tragically died following a car crash in 1980. If you are able to help, please contact the it manager who will pass on your details so you can make personal contact.

We now have a virtually complete set of school photos in our Gallery - to enlarge click on the name of the photo not the picture and select "original".

The 2015 Tom Weston Cricket Day will be held on Wedesday 2nd September for Worcester v Sussex at Worcestershire CCC - Click here for more information.

New Gallery - We are pleased to be able to offer a new section in our gallery - it consists of newpaper cuttings about the school kindly supplied by Old Boys Chris Wade and Peter White. More sections will be added soon. If you have other documents which may be of interest, please contact our IT manager.

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.

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.
