Welcome to the Old Lawrentian Website.
 Thank you for your patience whilst we create a new website and alumni profile member area. Once the new site has been tested and ready to upload we will be emailing OLs to let them know the new address so it is imperative that we have your current contact details please,  click here to inform us of them.

Due to the 'behind the scenes' work, our Members Section is not presently accessible so to register (if you are first time visitor) or to update your profile and notifiy us of your news, address changes and photos please contact OL Secretary Kerry at or on College phone number: 01843 572932 who will be delighted to hear from you and implement the alterations on your behalf.

It is our hope and aim that the new facility will not only enable you to find out about the social events that we have planned, but will also provide a wealth of anecdotes, articles and of course photographs which may serve to spark distant memories and hopefully reunite old friends! 

We are in active contact with over 4000 OLs sending 2-3 emails per year notifying them of Events, Reunions and information, and we post the OL News worldwide to every member once a year, in February. So please ensure we have your up to date details and please encourage your peers to do the same so can contnue to build the OL Community.
Our Facebook Group has doubled in size this year and we are delighted to now have 1400 members! If you have not joined us yet please do and help us push past the 2000 threshold this year! Find us on Facebook at St Lawrence College Old Lawrentians

We very much look forward to hearing from you, the site will only thrive with your input as you are The Old Lawrentian Society!

Happy Browsing!



President's Message

James Barden

Dear fellow OLs

I am delighted to say that the Society is going from strength to strength and its number continues to grow year after year, as does our database of active members, holding (importantly) current contact information, the number of planned events, and the amount of attendees at each event.We hope to generate even more interest by arranging more reunions; regionally, nationally and internationally, and Years, Houses, Industries and Interests will all be used as criteria for the reunions. Do look out for an event (or 2 for you)!

Many of the dates on the college’s social calendar are also open to OLs and Friends, and we will be sure to keep you updated with those dates.

We are always extremely pleased to hear of your news , and to receive articles for either the web or annual magazine (distributed  in February). Please contact Kerry or call her at the college on 01843 572932.

It simply remains for me to say welcome to the OL website, enjoy, and we hope that you keep in touch!

Best wishes

James Barden

Dear OLs

Since arriving it has been good to get to know a number of you, and I greatly value your ongoing attachment to your alma mater, and the valuable ways you contribute through events like the Careers Fair. I have also appreciated the wisdom and advice of many of you as we have considered how the School can continue to develop. 

I would like to take this opportunity to feed back to you how the School is doing and what the next plans are.

St Lawrence is in very good heart. We are larger than we have been for ten years, and now stand at  410 pupils (in the Senior School, ages 11 - 18). This growth is based on success; academically we are continually improving,  our sport continues to dominate our circuit, with our U13 XV and U13 Cricket XI undefeated, and our hockey teams formidable (2 of our teams are now Kent Schools indoor Hockey Champions); our cultural activities are also quickly developing, with the fantastic new Taylor Hall providing a wonderful resource for the performing arts.

Our plans are to build upon this success, and the governors have approved a number of developments. The first is already partially complete: a new water based astro pitch, a practice pitch, plus new cricket and rugby pitches.
Phase II of the Sports plan willl be to create a pavilion to overlook these pitches.
Before then we will first complete our proposed Academic Development, a new Science, Design, Technology School, on the main school site, facing the classroom block from the other end of Chapel Green. The foundations have been dug and work is about to begin in earnest iwith completion hoped by summer 2018. We would like to complete all the above projects within the next few years, subject to support, finance and planning permission.

I’m sure you’ll agree these are very exciting plans indeed, and I hope you will be able to visit the college and take part in many of the planned events in the near future.  Should you wish, please take a look at the current college website to see the latest news and developments. 

Finally, I do hope you enjoy viewing the Old Lawrentian website, and renewing ties of friendship that are such a hallmark of this school. 

I look forward to seeing many of you at the next OL event.

Best wishes
