The Allanian Society

The Allanian Society is the thriving alumni association for Dame Allan’s Schools. The Allanian Society ensures that pupils maintain their relationship with the Dame Allan’s family, even after they have left the Schools. The society welcomes members who have recently left the Schools or those who left a long time ago and would like to get back in touch with the Schools and former friends.

Allanians meet up for dinners and drinks receptions both in Newcastle and the North East, and London. Members also arrange informal reunions for certain year groups with the help of the Allanian Society.

Many Allanians return to take part in the Schools’ events, such as the annual Founder’s Day or Carol Service.

If you would like to reconnect with Dame Allan’s and join the society, please visit our purpose designed community website using the above. Here you can read about all the latest news and events involving Allanians, take a walk down memory lane, and, above all, reconnect with old school friends.

The Allanian Society Board work to support Dame Allan’s Schools through a varied programme of events including reunions, fundraising, mentoring and careers advice as well as creating opportunities for Allanians to keep in touch and stay connected.

The Board has over 25 volunteer members, of all ages, from various spheres within the Dame Allan’s community, and includes pupil representatives from Year 12 and 13. They meet several times a year, with the AGM taking place in early October.
