We believe the first gathering of former pupils was a dinner held in 1875, but the OT Club was not fully constituted until 1889, some twenty-six years after the founding of Tettenhall College.
The main objectives of the Club are to promote fellowship amongst Old Tettenhallians and to further the interests of the College. It has made a number of financial contributions to the College, such as assisting the purchase of Newbridge Playing Fields and the Horace Pearson Cricket Pavilion.
An elected committee oversees the general business of the Club and arranges both social and sporting events through the year. Each year a President and Vice President are selected and, along with the other Officers, they are elected at the Annual General Meeting.
The Club holds its Reunion Weekend in June and is grateful to the College for welcoming OTs back to the School for this traditional gathering. Sporting events between OTs and the College are staged over the two days of the weekend, with an informal barbecue on the Saturday evening which proves very popular.
All pupils automatically become life members of the Club on reaching their 16th birthday or leaving the College, whichever is the later event. Former and present members of staff and College Governors with a minimum of two years service also become ‘Old Tettenhallians’. We encourage our members to keep in touch through this website and the "Staying in Touch" page.
If you are interested in serving on the committee do please let us know. We welcome new ideas and input, particularly from younger OTs.
