Welcome to The John Carpenter Club

Join our E-Bulletin mailing list

The John Carpenter Club (JCC) is the alumni association of the City of London School. Old Boys from the School are known as Old Citizens – whether they’re aged 18 or 80!
There are Old Citizens in many different industries and professions, and members of the Club can offer useful information and contacts to current students and recent leavers in a variety of business sectors. The Club holds social and networking events, including reunions, professional group dinners, and an annual lunch for School leavers. We also have a thriving sports section.


One thing unites members of the JCC and that’s a respect for the quality of education that we all received at the School. The JCC helps to ensure that this quality of education is sustained and continues to be available to as wide a selection of talented students as possible. JCC members contribute to the School’s Bursary scheme, assist with careers events, and support the development of the School through regular contact with the Headmaster, students, staff and the Friends.
