Alumni

The school warmly welcomes contact with its past pupils. The school is known to many of our alumni as Our Lady’s Convent School (OLC), its former name before becoming Our Lady’s Abingdon School (OLA). Whichever school you attended we would love to reconnect with you. Below you can find details of all of the ways you can do this:

  • Join us on Facebook and LinkedIn
  • Share your school story with our current parents and pupils
  • Find out about forthcoming alumni reunions

Stay in touch!

OLA has an alumni page on Facebook and an alumni portal on LinkedIn to help former classmates stay in touch with each other and with the school. You can follow/join these pages using the buttons below.

To join the OLA alumni portal on LinkedIn go to the education section of your LinkedIn profile and your entry for the time spent with us. Edit your entry in the school field. Start to type in Our Lady’s Abingdon School and select it from the drop down that appears. To complete the process, go to our school page and follow us.

On our LinkedIn school page you will also see in the left-hand menu option (if using a laptop/pc) Alumni. If you click on this you can see all other alumni who have connected with us.

Share Your Story

We encourage our alumni to share how their time at OLA/OLC prepared them for the career they are now pursuing.

These stories are publicised through our parent eNewsletter and our social media channels and provide alumni with the opportunity to briefly showcase any service they now offer.

Stories should be no longer than 200 words and focus primarily on the preparation received at OLA/OLC. A high-resolution picture taken in a business setting should be included. Pictures should be taken landscape. Send your story and picture to marketing@ola.org.uk.

OLA 160th Anniversary Celebration

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic in the UK we have taken the decision to postpone our 160th Anniversary.

Rather than set a new date now we feel it is wise to wait until the Covid restrictions in the UK are fully lifted.

The 160th Anniversary will go ahead as soon as it is safe to welcome alumni who have registered for the anniversary back to school.
