Life membership is available for all former pupils and staff and costs £100. It can be paid in two instalments. There are generous discounts for new members who are sixty and over, for former staff and for those who join at an event.

Membership gives you the chance to trace old friends, whether overseas or in the UK, keep up to date with developments at the school, and buy gifts from our range of books, cards, token key-rings, tea towels and other items.

Benefits include two newsletters each year, monthly email updates and the opportunity to go to a Founder's Day service.
Due to restrictions on seating in the Cathedral, tickets are limited and most go to pupils, parents and guests. A small number are reserved for Society members only.
These can be requested from the school following the publication of the summer newsletter in August, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, with priority given to reunion groups or members who have not been back to this event recently.


The Society is run by a committee of volunteers, which meets in Bristol several times a year. These members organize the events and the newsletters, working closely with the school, as well as continuing the Society's tradition of benevolent work, keeping in touch with older members, or those who have been ill, by visits, cards and flowers. If you know of anyone who would appreciate some extra contact, please let us know.

We have great fun! We are always glad to have new members on the Committee. In particular we would welcome girls who have left school in the last 10 or 15 years.
Do you live in the Bristol area? Do you have reasonable computer skills and a little time to spare? Why not join our team and help to run the Society? It will look good on your CV if you are job-hunting or returning to work! Come and find out more at one of our events or contact us.

As a number of our key committee members will soon be stepping down, we are currently looking for people to join us in 2016, to shadow roles which include Vice Chair (two year post leading to Chairman), Treasurer and Events Co-ordinator. None of these require a huge commitment in time, but we look for continuity in a role over several years.

Please contact us to request a membership form, or to find out more about the Committee.
