The Whitgift School Development and Alumni Office

I write to you sitting in the glorious sunshine in Andrew Quad with the School very much alive after a busy and successful first week. I hope that you and your families are well since I last wrote to you in this Newsletter.

This Term promises to be a busy one not just for the wider School but for us in the Alumni Relations and Development Office too. We are now almost a completely new Team with Zohra Jeraj having gone on maternity leave we welcome Carla Giusti as her maternity cover. Carla will be the first point of contact for you as OWs as restrictions lift and we are able to welcome you onto the School site. The first alumni I event we hope to have on site will be the Class of 1991 Reunion on Saturday 3 July. Further details will be circulated in due course, but the event will run in the afternoon and hopefully we will be able to come together and enjoy the easing of restrictions and hopefully some cricket on North Field too!

As we take on production of this Newsletter if you wish to continue receiving it, we will need an Email address on file so that we can send it to you electronically. Please do send this to Carla at It will also be available on Whitgift Connect ( which I strongly encourage you to register for if you haven’t done so already. This will form part of an extensive alumni relations programme with a wide range of events and activities for OWs around the globe. If you have suggestions for events we would be delighted to receive them at as lockdown continues to ease we all look forward to being able to welcome you onto the site and getting to know as many of you as possible.

I would like to thank Richard Blundell and everyone else involved for all their dedicated hard work in production of this Newsletter to date and for all the advice and guidance they have given me in my short time at the School.

Director of Development
