News of Old Bournemouthians

A new initiative is to post a periodic “News of OB’s” section to keep the Association and its members up-to-date, so please, dear alumnus, get in touch!

The type of information we’d like to share is: careers, locations, degrees / qualifications, family, news of other OB’s, dates & memories at school, etc. All generations of alumni are encouraged to contribute!

Below are extracts from the 1913 and 1974 editions of The Bournemouthian (clearly pupils didn’t have Christian names until the seond half of the Twentieth Century). Sadly the practice of publishing OB news died along with the magazine in the early 2000s, but hopefully this can be changed.

  1. Most ‘Good’ schools take a bit of trouble to keep in touch with their ‘alumni’. why cannot ‘Bournemouth School for Boys’ do the same? Can you tell me anything about the whereabouts of JC Elliott (head boy (1946) or Ken Gardiner (Chairman of AFC Bournemouth in 2005) or who were The ‘Chickalas’
