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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Twice a year, we bring you Latin Life, the newsletter for RLS Alumni (download the latest edition, Issue 15, below). Please get in touch if you would like to add your details to our alumni database to ensure that you receive Latin Life and notifications about forthcoming events, by emailing email@example.com
Latin Life Issue 14 (You can also read the full versions of two articles from which extracts are published in this edition here: Ed Grimsdale’s tribute to Ron Buckingham and Nigel Norman’s report on his Birthday Party spectacular, the ‘Secret Pensioners’ Ball’ at RLS, entitled, ‘Comedy Legends Appear at the School’
Thank you to everyone who took part in our Virtual Archive Day at the RLS Alumni Facebook on (or since) 13th May. We were delighted to welome Old Latins from all over the world to ‘attend’. It was wonderful to see old friends coming together and sharing some great photos from their days at RLS! You can still visit anytime to view the material and memories posted on the day.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to welcome you back to RLS very soon!
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.
