Events

OG events are a great opportunity to meet up with old school friends and make new acquaintances from the wider Glenalmond community.  Several dinners and sporting get-togethers take place throughout the world every year. There is also a full calendar of events at Coll, to which OGs are invited.

The brochure below gives an overview of events during the academic year ahead and where events are available to book, links are also provided.

Please contact us if you would like to hold an event or have a suggestion for future events. We will also be holding a range of activities from May 2022 to celebrate the 175th anniversary of Glenalmond College. More information on how we will be marking this exciting milestone can be found HERE.
