Alumnae Community

AHS Alumnae Society June 2024

Our AHS Alumnae Society is an incredible network of just under 2000 former Aylesbury High School students based all around the world, who we consider to be a vital part of our vibrant AHS community.

This year, 2023-24, we are extremely excited to have established the AHS Society Steering Committee, and are looking forward to running our second AHS Society Tea Party on 21 September 2024, 1430-1630, following the success of the inaugural event last year.  If you would like to attend, and we have not managed to contact you, please contact Hilary Osgerby, PA to the Headmistress, on [email protected]  – we would love to hear from you.

Each year, our Alumnae return to school to give career insights and university advice to our students.  This month we hosted our first Community Careers Event, where 9 Alumnae shared insights with our current Year 10 students. 

I really enjoyed the session and enjoyed being back at the school!  The girls were engaged and asked questions.

It was so nice to engage with really enthusiastic students. 

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful careers event you hosted yesterday. It was a great opportunity to link back up with the school.

Moving forward we hope to build a calendar of Alumnae reunions, networking events and opportunities to visit school and keep in touch. Whether you were one of our first AHS students at our new site in 1959, a recent leaver, or somewhere in between, we would love to connect with you.

Our aims are to:

  • Promote networking
  • Offer advice and help with careers to both current and past students
  • Organise events and facilitate reunions
  • Provide a supportive network
  • Support the School
  • Facilitate communication via the Alumnae Newsletter, social media and email

Alumnae receive a termly newsletter, invitations to reunion events, fundraising and other School initiatives and developments.

AHS Society Newsletter:

If you have something you would like to share about your time at AHS and/or life after our School, such as updates to be included in the Alumnae Newsletter, please contact Hilary, as below. If you have met up with old school friends for a special anniversary reunion, or have news about yourself and/or other ‘old girls’, we’d be delighted to share it with the broader alumnae community.  Readers particularly enjoy seeing old (and current) pictures and hearing about their lives and careers since leaving AHS.

We are currently building the September 2024 edition – please reach out to Hilary on [email protected]  if you would like to contribute.

Are you interested in joining the AHS Society Steering Committee?

We are looking to expand our active and enthusiastic committee of ‘old girls’ who run the AHS Society, in partnership with the Headmistress and School. We would welcome volunteers to bring new ideas and expertise to the mix. We meet three times a year (with the AGM in September). However, most communication and activity will be conducted by email and phone. 

If you would like to talk to someone about joining, please email Hilary on:
