Old Guildfordians

The strength of our community is at the heart of the RGS Guildford philosophy. Your relationship with the School, other OGs and the wider RGS community continues long after you’ve left.

We look forward to reinstating our busy OG programme of events, including undergraduate drinks, ‘Class of …’ reunion dinners, Golden Garden Parties, OG and former staff celebrations and a number of sporting fixtures. In 2019 we held our first international reunion dinner in Singapore and we look forward to being able to host more global celebrations once we are able to do so.

Make sure you don’t miss out on news and events and sign up to our digital mailing list.

We host our own social platform – www.rgsconnect.com – a unique networking platform of over 2100 members of our community willing to give career guidance.
