The objectives of the club have been maintained through to the present day with all pupils becoming automatic lifetime members of the Club when they leave the School, with no annual subscriptions. Long serving members of staff are also welcomed as Honorary OO’s.

Upon leaving the school at the end of U6, our newly formed OO’s receive a Club tie or a silver camel charm as a welcome gift, as well as a subscription to the annual Old Oundelian Magazine.

We try to offer a broad programme of events, and sports clubs, operating across the UK and internationally. These provide the opportunity to meet up with fellow OO’s and honorary OO’s including former staff, and to keep in touch with the School.

The OO Club operates on a regional basis with corresponding members in the UK and overseas who keep in touch with OOs in their region, giving any help they can, particularly to those visiting overseas. To get involved in your region, please contact your corresponding member.

Administration of the Club is carried out by its full-time secretary located in the Oundle Society offices. The general direction of its affairs is in the hands of a committee supported by a finance and policy committee, which meets three times a year at Oundle.
