OL Club

The Club aims to promote the advancement of education at Lancaster Royal Grammar School. In addition, the Club helps Old Lancastrians to contact each other, maintain or renew friendships and keep in touch with the School.


Thank you!

Thank you to all those who attended this year's Founders' Weekend on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th July. We were delighted to see so many of you and will be publishing photographs and the Founders' Weekend Report shortly.


OL Club Membership

The Old Lancastrian Club is open to any former pupil of the school - all new members receive an OL tie and the latest OL Newsletter. The £15 annual subs will entitle you to an annual newsletter as well as invitations and news of the latest OL events. The membership form is attached to the right, if you would like to join please complete the form and return it to Fiona Alderson-Beeching by email or post to her at, LRGS, East Road, LA1 3EF.


The Old Lancastrian Club exists for the advancement of education at LRGS. Over many years the Club has contributed to the wider development of education at the school by giving grants to societies and individuals. In the last two years for example the Club has supported the cricket tour to Barbados, the Exploration Society and the Duke of Edinburgh group.  In addition many pupils have received grants from the OL Travel Fund. 

These are just some of the ways in which the Club continues to enrich the life of the school. However they come at a cost and when the committee started to consider the subscription, we realised that no one could remember the last increase!

The annual subscription fee is currently £15.  We would be most grateful if you could make the necessary change to your standing order and email to let us know that you have made the change. Alternatively, please cancel your current standing order and complete the attached form for us to set up a new standing order with your bank.
