Our purpose is to provide the focus and means by which Gordonians can maintain their link with Gordon's School and with each other, both within the UK and around the world. We also exist to support the School as well as Gordonians. We work together with the School Governors, The Gordon Foundation, the Head Teacher and the Development Office to maintain the reputation of Gordon's School and help to ensure its continuing success and prosperity.
When established, the Gordonians operated as a separate association with a chargeable annual membership. However, as it became increasingly clear that many Gordonians felt excluded from Gordonian and School activities due to the subscription structure as well as the will to include all alumni within the Gordon Community, in June 2019 existing Members voted in favour of dissolving the Association. From January 2020, management of Gordon's alumni relations and activities moved into the School community, specifically the Development Team within The Gordon Foundation. We are confident that this change, particularly removing a paid annual membership, will encourage all Gordonians to feel part of the community regardless of their circumstances.
With the agreement of the membership, management of Gordonian funds has been transferred, with appropriate restrictions, to The Gordon Foundation, with oversight provided by the new Gordonian Advisory Panel. An important function of this Panel is also to oversee the funding and allocation of provision of the Gordonian Awards, funded from Gordonian funds.

REV DENIS ROBINSON
In my 37 years at Gordon's I was involved in the many positive changes and modernisation that have contributed to its outstanding success.
Make plans for 2033 especially, when we can celebrate the 200 Anniversary of Gordon's birth when hopefully King Charles or his son visit as did our Patron in 1985. If for instance its eleven years since you left. Reflect on how quickly the time has gone by and get in touch. God willing I'll be there!
