Seasons Greetings from the Old Paludians Association


The Old Paludians Association Committee wishes you a
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
and we hope to see you and your friends
at the Reunion on Saturday 21st March 2020
at Upton Court Grammar School. 
Formal Invitations will be sent out in late January.

We’d also like to take the opportunity to remind you that you are cordially invited to the 2020 Annual Reunion to be held on Saturday 21st March 2020 at Upton Court Grammar School, Lascelles Road, Slough SL3 7PR from 12pm to 5pm. We hope you will be available on that date, that you will make a note in your diary to attend and that you will invite as many of your friends as possible. Last year’s event was very well attended and enjoyed. A report may be found on the website at

In a change from last year, and to make the occasion even more sociable, we propose to offer a traditional afternoon cream-tea comprising sandwiches, savoury and sweet items instead of the usual lunch. There will also be tea and biscuits available for those would prefer (following an exhaustive investigation the causes of last year’s biscuit shortage have been addressed and the situation rectified).

Please share this invitation

To encourage maximum attendance, we would appreciate it if you could share this invitation with any friends, peers and teachers with whom you are still in touch. Those that are not yet members of the Old Paludians Association are also welcome to join us by following the link at

There will be a raffle with the draw to take place after tea. Donations of raffle prizes would be especially welcome.

A link to the online reply form to indicate whether or not you will be able to attend the Reunion may be found here; There is also a printable/fillable copy of the form  which may be downloaded from here OPA-2020-Reunion-Reply-Form-20191201-01-RDS and returned by post or filled in and sent by email.

Payments for the annual Reunion largely cover the cost of catering at the event. The Old Paludians Association is only able to keep going thanks to the generous support of our members. As always, we would be grateful to receive any contributions to help us maintain our community and continue to support the school.

Details of how 2019 donations were used will be provided at the AGM and on the website.

Members are invited and encouraged to provide contributions.Please e‑mail your news items and interesting stories to Glenys Laws, the editor, at (or post: Old Paludians Association, Upton Court Grammar School, Slough.
