The Office

The School works very closely with the Officers of the Edward Alleyn Club. Alleyn's greatly values its links with all former pupils, which are maintained through the School's Development & Alumni Office and through events at the School, at Burbage Road and regionally around the country. The Development & Alumni Office acts as the adminstrative hub of the Edward Alleyn Club and co-ordinates reunions, Edward Alleyn Club events and communication with former pupils. In addition, it works closely with current and former parents via the Alleyn's Parents Association and 'Friends of Alleyn's'. The role of the Development Office is to support the continued advancement of Alleyn's as a leading academic school, the ‘best' co-educational day school in the UK offering "Co-educational excellence for all, in a caring, friendly, tolerant community."

The Edward Alleyn Club Magazine is produced twice a year and sent to over 5,000 members world-wide. Alumni e-bulletins are sent out each term to all those members for whom the Club has an email address. Martha Jones, Head of Alumni Relations, has chief responsibility for maintaining our relationship database and this website.

If you would like to contact the president of the Edward Alleyn Club, you can do so using this email address: EdwardAlleynClubPresident@alleyns.org.uk

The School is always pleased to welcome AOBs and AOGs back to School or to help put them in touch with old friends and comrades.

We aim to build a stronger and more supportive whole-school community by providing administrative and coordination services to maintain, renew and encourage the involvement of alumni, parents and friends of the School and to promote its general well-being. To achieve this, we work to foster a closer relationship between alumni, parents, staff and friends through the offering of an increased number of opportunities, in Dulwich, regionally and abroad for these groups to join together and celebrate their membership of the Alleyn’s community.
