How to log on

How to log onto the OSOBS website:

In addition to all paid up Members of the society, all Ottershaw School Old Boys have access to our forum and can make comments without further registration. Every pupil who attended the school has an account. Paid up members of the society additionally have automatic access to our special Members' Area pages.

In order to access these facilities, you will need to log onto the site. Please read our terms and conditions of use.

All Old Boys have been given a unique username which is their surname000 where “surname” is your surname and the “000” = your school number to three characters – i.e if you were OTT 78 and your name was Smith your user name is smith078 – the username is not case sensitive. All old boys have been given an initial password of mansion which should be used when you first use the site. 

For associate members and staff, the username is your surname + your first initial + 000, So if you are John Davies your username will be daviesj000. Your password is headmaster but you can change this later if you wish.

​If you had already signed up to our forum using a different username, you may find that has now been edited to the above format although you should try your old username first to see if it is still active.

How to change your password or other details:

Once you have logged in you will have the option to change your password to something of your choosing. To do so you need to use  "My Account" which is a link on the right hand side of the home page. This will take you to your account details where you can give yourself a new password or amend your email address - but please don't change your default username as this helps with our administration and membership. When finished don't forget to click on save before you log out!

If you have any problems with any of the above, please contact the IT manager for assistance.
