The John Carpenter Club

The John Carpenter Club (JCC) is the alumni, or Old Boys’, association for the City of London School. Old Boys from the School are known as Old Citizens – whether they’re aged 18 or 80!

The JCC coordinates all aspects of Old Citizen activity and the President of the JCC represents Old Citizens at School and other official events.

At the beginning of August 2010 we linked our database to our website, creating a members' area, enabling Members to update their contact and other details directly. They can also search for former classmates by name, occupation or the year they left CLS. Members also have access to our archive of photos, including the pictures above, in the Rogues Gallery and videos of Old Citizens Talking about their schooldays and personal experiences.

Last week was half term, having been back at school for seven weeks – a very busy seven weeks. There are 920 boys in the School this year; I think we could say we are “comfortably full”, given that the building was originally designed for 750!

Oxbridge Dinner
14 March 2014

Last Sunday saw OCs converge on St John's College, Cambridge for the inaugural OC Oxbridge annual dinner. We had a fine number in attendance and a few had made the trip across from Oxford for what we hope will become an established date in the OC calendar. After a meal in Hall the party progressed to one of the College's private rooms for a round of Desserts that saw new friendships forged, much nostalgia for our days at such 'a great school' and hopefully much enjoyment had by all! I would like to thank Alistair Somerville, ('07-'12, Worcester College) for his invaluable help in putting together the evening and, on the back of the success of this year's dinner, I am sure that we are all very much looking forward to Oxford hosting us next year.
