Old Witleians

Old Witleians’ Association (OWA)

The Old Witleians’ Association (OWA) is the network through which all past pupils and staff maintain a connection with King Edward’s and friends made while at School.  Irrespective of the length of service or years as a pupil, everyone becomes an ‘Old Witleian’ (also referred to as ‘Old Wits’ or ‘OWs’) when they leave the School.  The OWA is in place to provide an ongoing sense of belonging, a ready-made network of contacts and friends with shared experiences.

To help nurture continued links with the School and to re-live memories with friends, the OWA, with direct support from the Development team, host regular local, national and international social events, facilitate communication between Old Wits to enable them to be of mutual support and assistance to one another, as well as encourage alumnus to maintain and extend an on-going interest in the welfare of the School.

Events throughout the year include sports days, reunions, Bridewell Fellows’ Lunch prior to the Christmas Carol Service, the 1553 Guild and 1867 Society Lunches, and the annual golf tournament in addition to fundraising events.  Old Witleians receive our annual publications Kestrel which is a roundup of news, activities and events from the academic year, and The Bridewell Foundation Report and are encouraged to join the Old Wits social media channels and networking sites.
