Being a pupil at Gordonstoun is an experience that stays with you forever.
The aim of the Gordonstoun Association (GA) is to promote and strengthen former pupils’ links with each other and the school. The GA holds events throughout the year and helps former students organise their own reunions. Our annual 'GA Day' is held at Gordonstoun each Spring and is a fantastic opportunity for OGs of all eras to meet up, mingle with old friends and make new ones. We can also help with work placements and work experience or continuing professional development.
We’ll keep in touch through regular email updates of events, gatherings and reunions in your area. So, don’t forget to tell us of any changes to your contact details including your email address.
Our Patron is HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and the Chairman is Mr John Mulligan (Alytre 1981). The staff based at Gordonstoun School are Steve Brown, our Co-ordinator and Emma Thorpe our Office Administrator – she’s the one to chat to about hosting reunions, arranging a visit or publishing an obituary. Robin Gibb (Gordonstoun 2005) is our Committee Secretary, Ben Goss (Former Staff) is Keeper of the Gordonstoun Family, Stephan von Massenbach (Duffus 1998) is our Treasurer and, Nicola Montgomery nee Hill (Hopeman 1980), Edward Kirk (Duffus 2005), Heather Woodward (Hopeman 2000), Andrew Lyall (Duffus 1988), Ekaterina (Kat) Mikhailova (Hopeman 2006) and Martine Peltzer nee Sturgess (Hopeman 1988) make up the rest of our Committee.
Reunions, Gatherings and Events
If you’ve lost touch with the school, or know anyone else who has, we’d love to hear from you. If you are looking for an easy way to stay in touch or to find someone you have lost contact with, take a look at our Facebook Group. To view videos, past and present, please visit our page on YouTube.
News items are a great way to share information with other OGs and you can talk about anything you like. To post something, please contact Emma Thorpe in the GA Office on email@example.com or phone us on + 44 (0) 1343 837 922.
The GA is aware that some OGs may have had unhappy experiences, or suffered abuse whilst at school. Gordonstoun is very sad and sorry for any abuse suffered by former students whilst at the school. We take all allegations of abuse seriously and will provide you with appropriate help and support to enable you to talk about your experiences, and report criminal matters to the police.

Visiting the School
Here at Gordonstoun we never close the door on former students and you’re always welcome to come back and visit us during term time. Feel free to bring your family too. You will be made to feel at home again and we will happily give you a tour of the school to bring back all those memories. Much will be familiar, but there have also been significant new developments. You will be invited to have lunch in the Refectory with the staff and pupils and if you left school more than a few years ago you may be pleasantly surprised at the quality and choice of the food you are offered! To arrange a visit please contact Emma Thorpe on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on + 44 (0) 1343 837 922.
We would be honoured to publish an obituary for any former pupil, staff or friend of Gordonstoun. To tell us of any bereavement, please contact Emma Thorpe on email@example.com or phone us on + 44 (0) 01343 837 922
