The College has a wonderful alumni community, known as Old Denstonians. Upon leaving the College, you become an Old Denstonian and lifelong member of The OD Club. Founded in 1879, the club exists to strengthen the links between current pupils and Old Denstonians, giving a snapshot of our vibrant and diverse community. As an OD, you are invited to social, sporting, networking and reunion events throughout the year. All details can be found by signing up to our dedicated alumni platform, where you can connect with friends, view events and share news.
