Alumni & Friends

Alumni & Friends

Burford Alumni & Friends was started as part of the school’s 40th anniversary celebrations and is designed to include as many alumni and friends as possible – past pupils, parents, staff, governors and community members. The aim is to keep you informed about events and activities related to the school, invite you to occasions that might interest you and help the renewal of friendships.

Our first event, the memorabilia exhibition at the 40th Anniversary Fayre, was a great success. We lost count of the number of people who visited to browse old scrapbooks, class photos, photos of school events and other material. Several people recognized themselves in the photos, and met friends from their era. A big thank you to those who lent photos or sent memories for display.

The exhibition was repeated and indeed extended in the school hall in April when visitors were also able to tour the school and have a drink at the FOB-run bar.  I’m sure there’ll be more occasions when the memorabilia will be on show, so do keep sending photos and memories of your time at Burford – we’d love to hear from you.

If you’d like to be on our distribution list then please email us on, or contact us via the school office and we’ll be in touch to get the details we need.

You can also be included in the Alumni & Friends Directory which is available to other registered Alumni & Friends. You have the option to opt out of the directory and still be on our mailing list, or you can choose to be in the directory but without contact details, in which case anyone wishing to contact you can email Alumni & Friends and we’ll pass their request on to you.

So if you have been associated with the school at any time and in any capacity, please do get in touch and ask your family & friends to do the same. The more people involved the more effective it will be.
