The Old Maidstonian Society holds regular and occasional events. One annual fixture is the Annual Supper (here’s a link to the Annual Supper Page, which gives details when available). The Supper is normally on the penultimate Friday of March and preceded by the Annual General Meeting (see the Organization Page), both held at the School. A link to the booking form will be found on the right when available. The Events page and the posts in the events category list others. Also included in the events page and category are School events to which OMs are invited.
The Society awards a number of prizes and grants. See the Awards page for details of these (and in the case of grants, the guidelines and application form). In order to maintain these awards, the Society undertakes fundraising by various means: see the Fundraising page. Members are strongly encouraged to contribute to these charitable funds and thereby support current and recent pupils.
Please let us know if you are organizing a reunion so we can post it here and notify others who might be interested.
The Society runs a mentoring scheme, and OMs are invited to consider becoming mentors to current and recent pupils: see the Mentoring page.
There is an Old Maidstonians rugby team, organised jointly with Maidstone Rugby Club.
Details are available at:
In recognition of the link with the club, it has made the head a Vice-President.

London Get-Together – Thursday 22nd November 2018, 7.00pm – 9.30pm
Following the success of the previous London events, the Society would like to invite all Old Maidstonians to an early evening informal gathering being held at The George Inn in Southwark, from 19:00 until 21:30. The evening will be hosted by our President, Mr Paul Smith.
The historic 17th century George Inn is a galleried coaching inn at 77 Borough High Street, SE1 1NH, close to The Shard and London Bridge. See the pictures from a previous occasion!
A private room with pay bar has been booked and there will be a buffet. The Society will meet part of the costs of the evening, but we would appreciate a nominal £10 contribution, which can be paid on the evening. In order that we can have an idea of the numbers wishing to attend, and therefore the amount for the buffet, we would be very grateful if you would please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have to advise The George Inn 10 days in advance, so please respond as soon as possible.
