Membership of the Old Bordenians Association is open to the following:

All those whose names have appeared on the roll of Borden Grammar School;

Past and present members of the teaching staff of the School;

Past and present members of the School’s Governing Body.

The charitable objects of the Association are:

The public benefit of the advancement of education of pupils and former pupils of Borden Grammar School, Sittingbourne by:

(i) providing, and assisting in the provision of, facilities [not required to be provided by the local education authority] for education at the School, financially and practically.

(ii) promoting education (including social and physical training) in such ways as the Management Committee consider fitting.

(iii) awarding grants to school organisations to facilitate disadvantaged groups and individuals.

(iv) furtherance of education, or to prepare for entry to any occupation, trade or profession on leaving any educational establishment.

(v) assisting in such ways as the Management Committee consider fitting to develop such persons’ physical, mental, emotional and inspirational well-being, and moral and social development, through extra-curricula and leisure-time enrichment.

(vi) encouraging connections between school alumni and the School, including gatherings, assemblies, activities and fundraising events.

We arrange an Annual Reunion Dinner at the School (although this has had to be paused during the Coronavirus pandemic) and publish news and articles from Members on our website and Facebook pages.

All of our Officers are Old Bordenians and volunteers, who give their time and skills freely to do their best to keep the Association running.  

Officers and Committee Members are elected annually at the Annual General Meeting, to which all Old Bordenians are welcome.   This is normally held in September, and announced on our website.  

Membership of the Association is now free. Instead of paid subscriptions, we invite donations to raise the funds which allow the Association to support the School.    We are thankful for all regular annual and lump-sum contributions, no matter how large or small.  For example, £15 per-Member per-year would allow us to fund the provision of a minibus for the pupils of the School, into the future.

Donations can be arranged by Standing Order, eBanking Payment, Paypal or Cheque. 

We also welcome offers of practical help from Old Bordenians.
