St Aidan’s Alumni network is known as St Aidan’s Onwards. We would like to connect former students and teachers with the current life of the School and also learn more about your onwards journey.

Over the next few years our Alumni will develop to be a thriving network, reconnecting students from across the globe with their former classmates. We invite all our students to join this network in Year 13 and we are also reaching out to all who have left since the School was formed in 1968.

To become part of St Aidan’s Onwards email: and also connect with us on Facebook @staidansonwards or Twitter: @StAidans_alumni

Our 50th celebrations will include a Gala Concert on 4th May 2019 (7pm) and a special celebratory service on 5th May 2019 at Ripon Cathedral. On Saturday 4th May (2-4pm), there will be a ‘Jubilee Welcome’ for all those connected with the school, to which Alumni will be specially welcome. This will be held in school.
