ALUMNI

The Development Office at the Royal Hospital School provides opportunities for alumni to stay in touch with old school friends by maintaining a network through reunions, social events and supporting the RHSA. It actively invites former pupils to contribute to the current School community through volunteer work, providing networking or career advice and donations to its fundraising efforts.
