Chairman's Welcome

Welcome to the Old Stoic Society

As you delve into the pages of our website you will uncover a hive of Old Stoic activity taking place across the globe, as well as a range of opportunities open to you, which are ripe for the picking.

With our fundamental aim at heart, we strive to provide Old Stoics with lifelong support and lifelong fellowship as soon as they leave the gates of Stowe and enter the world beyond. 

With over ten thousand Old Stoics in our ranks, we are lucky to harbour an unrivalled range of business, professional and personal connections that make up a support network for our members. You can find long-lost friends or make new business contacts via our Online Old Stoic Register, which interacts with LinkedIn.

The members’ services and opportunities we provide aim to inspire members to have the courage to stand out from the crowd, think on their feet and to be creative, so they can make a real impact in life. We feed the knowledge of older generations to young Old Stoics through a varied careers programme and run a mentoring programme to provide advice and progression for all.

The Society has a myriad of sports teams and clubs for members to take part in and we actively encourage new groups to start up. A varied calendar of members' events take place across the country and the world each year, to allow everyone to meet up or return to Stowe.

The Old Stoic Office at Stowe is led by our Director, Anna Semler and our Events Co-ordinator, Caroline Whitlock. The direction and activity of the Society is managed by the Old Stoic Society Committee and a handful of smaller subcommittees. If you would like to lend a hand, please do get in touch.

This Society exists to support its members and with that in mind, please do make full use of it. Please take part in our events and activities, give us comments and ideas and do keep in touch. 

I hope you enjoy the news, activities and services on offer to you via this website. 

With very best wishes 

Jonathon Hall (Bruce 79) OSS Chairman
