The Old Knightonians (OKs) are part of the extended Knighton House family and form a valuable link between both past pupils and formers staff and the school as it is now.
Time spent at Knighton House creates happy memories that stay with people long after they leave. All OKs are part of a far-flung community that shares an affection for this special place. Chaired by Fiona Potter the OK Committee helps everyone keep in touch, organising events and reunions.
We are keen to ensure that all previous pupils are able to keep in touch with friends from their time at Knighton. To that end we have a database of OKs who have given us their contact details – we are always looking to add to this as well as keep contact details up to date! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your up to date contact details. We also help OKs maintain links with each other through reunions which are held either at the school or in London.
Ways of keeping in touch
There are lots of ways to keep in touch with Knighton – take a look through our website to catch up on life at Knighton House including our recent ISI inspection reports – “Excellent” in all areas. The Knighton Yearbook gives you a flavour of the year at school and we also have Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.
Each year we put together an Old Knightonian newsletter, please email email@example.com with your news, we’d be delighted to include any news you send us.
In 2017/18 we held three OK events – two in London and one at Knighton. The next gathering will be in a South London pub – date and venue to be announced.
There is now a range of Knighton House clothing and accessories available from the website www.tulipandteal.co.uk. Do take a look – they are made by a parent and are very popular with the girls!
Finally it would fantastic if you could keep us up to date with any changes to your communication details by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of the schools extended curriculum we have developed a Careers and Inspiration Programme – we invite OKs to return to the school to talk to pupils in Years 7 and 8 about their chosen profession and offer advice to the girls. If you would like to be part of this please email: email@example.com your name and profession, thank you.
Of course all Old Knightonians are always welcome to return and visit Knighton House. Please just let us know when you are planning to come, I am sure you will understand that we can’t allow unaccompanied visits around the school during term time.
Letter from Fiona Potter, Chair of the OK Committee
“Having seen the enormous amount of pleasure OKs derive from meeting up with each other, often after many, many years, the Headmaster and I have decided that we should have an OK gathering once or twice a year, at Knighton and in London.
The Family Day at Knighton on 10th June was wonderful – the sun shone, girls were emerging from tents on the front lawn and doing cartwheels around us after a camping night, the atmosphere was the same as it always was, and there was a fascinating tour to be had of every part of Knighton today. We picnicked on the lawn and happily reminisced with old friends and new ones too. Knighton still retains that magical quality that meant so much to us.
After our March gathering in London which was greatly enjoyed by everyone, the next London party is likely to be later this year, in a pub south of the river where we very much hope to see all and any of you that can make it.
Have a wonderful summer”.
