As we welcome in the New Year, I write to confirm that the Society Committee members will stand down from office for the final time. I am delighted that the school has agreed to take on the previous work of the Society and I know that the Foundation will prove ever more popular with our loyal alumni. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have served you as Chairman of the Society Committee and I would like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow Committee members for their support and hard work over the last few years. We have grown ever closer to the school during these years which has been a very positive move for alumni and current pupils alike. I thank all of you who have attended our events and supported our efforts.
I wish Julia Campbell all the best for her time on maternity leave and welcome back Debbie Bersey who will oversee the Foundation in Julia’s absence.
We now look to the future with some excitement and hope that I will see you soon at a Foundation event and will contact the school if you are keen to be in touch or have suggestions to make. I wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year.

Welcome from Louise Moelwyn-Hughes, Head of St Edmund's
St Edmund's School is proud of and grateful for the very positive and close relationship which it enjoys with the Foundation and its alumni. From organising year group reunions to welcoming individual former pupils who have an interest in revisiting their alma mater, the school is keen to encourage and foster friendships between all those who have fond memories of their old school and its characters.
Our active and creative Foundation Office is always keen to hear from former pupils and to glean information about the St Edmund’s of old, while of course offering the opportunity for former pupils to be updated on recent and future developments. Please do not hesitate to be in contact with us if you would like to attend particular school events which might be of interest or if you would like to rekindle your acquaintance with the school in any way. We would be delighted to welcome you back as a friend and to share some of our enthusiasm for the school with you.
