Keeping you in touch with the Beeston community far and wide.
Old Beestonians are a varied and diverse group, but they all share the life-long bond of being an OB (Old Beestonian). These friendships are enduring and OBs gather often informally and – increasingly – formally. Many have their own children at the school and express huge loyalty to it.
OBs are important to us and we are always delighted to hear your news and views, and welcome you back to see us at events, or a visit if you’re in the area, just to remind yourself what a special school Beeston is! We regularly invite OBs to come in to school to share their career stories and life experiences to inspire children at assemblies or evening speaker events.
As an OB, you may be interested in the School’s Admission process for your children or grand children; if so please see our Admissions page. We are always delighted to welcome new generations of Beestonians from OB families.
WELCOME FROM THE CHAIRMAN
‘I am delighted to welcome you to the Old Beestonian page on the website. The O.B. Society was established in 2002 with the publication of the first ‘Old Beestonian’. The Society was set up by Innes MacAskill, the school’s fourth headmaster and one of its iconic masters, Cliff Vincent who taught P.E. between 1971 and 1995. We produce the ‘Old Beestonian’ every two years. It has two aims –
• Assist in maintaining links and friendships between OBs and re-establishing contact between lost friends.
• Encourage past pupils to stay in touch with Beeston, record their news and keep abreast of news and developments at the school.
A third initiative we are currently considering is the formation of a Beeston Foundation, funds raised for this will go towards capital projects for the school and funding future bursaries.
We continue to enjoy your letters and emails – if you appreciate receiving and reading the newsletter, remember that your contributions are invaluable for its future success – and we love to hear how you are getting on. Do visit whenever you are next in the area, and see how Beeston thrives today.
Best wishes to you all.’
The Earl of Leicester
Chairman, Old Beestonian Association
