RLS has a friendly and dynamic alumni network, and we are keen to hear from all former pupils, whether you left last year or a little further back! We are passionate about involving alumni in the life of the school and regularly host archive events, visits and reunions, and have a growing network of London-based alumni.
Please get in touch to say hello and see how you can get involved, by contacting Jo Ballantine at email@example.com

Due to current Covid restrictions, we will be holding our second Virtual Archive Day at the RLS Alumni Facebook on Wednesday, 5th May. We hope to welcome many of you again, from all over the globe, to catch up with your old friends and share photos and memories.
The Archive is located in the Wagland Room in Rotherfield House, and is run by Robert Munday (Class of 1970) and Lucy Beckett, RLS Development & Alumni Relations Assistant. We hold an annual Archive Open Day in May, but the archive is also open by appointment all year round in term-time. If you would like to arrange to come and browse the archive or have any items you would like to donate, please do email us at email@example.com
. We hope to welcome you back to RLS very soon!
News and forthcoming events:
All alumni are invited to join our virtual Remembrance Service taking place at 10.50am today, Friday 6th November 2020. Please do click on the Youtube link
, which will go live just before 10.50am today.
For news about forthcoming alumni events and reunions, as well as regular nostalgic glimpses into the archive, you can now find dedicated social media pages for Old Latins on the RLS Alumni Facebook
and RLS Alumni Twitter
pages. Using free social media accounts is the most straightforward and cost-effective way for us to create an alumni community that you can access from anywhere in the world. Please look for it, like it and share it with classmates or groups – thank you!
We are also keen to hear from you about what kind of events you would like us to organise on your behalf. We aim to have regular social and networking events, held both locally, in Buckingham, but also in London, so please let us know if you have any ideas of new events or locations we should consider in the future by emailing your thoughts to Latinlife@royallatin.org.
We are seeking 100 Old Latins to lead the way in becoming founding members of Latin Inspires
, a community of Old Latins passionate about supporting their old school and helping to inspire future generations of Latins. Please visit Latin Inspires
