Former students and staff are encouraged to join the Old Cryptians’ Club to enable them to keep in touch with old friends and colleagues. It is an opportunity to meet together at the Annual Dinner, Founders’ Day and other events organised by the Old Cryptians.
Younger Members under 21 or in full time education automatically receive free membership.
Membership fee is just £25 per annum. For this you will receive regular OC and school news, invitations (and discounted ticket) to the Annual Dinner, Founders’ Day service and supper plus other events organised throughout the year. The Cryptian is published annually and is available online and/or hard copy.
As a member you are also welcome to join the OCC committee; a friendly bunch who try to steer the club in the right direction!
The annual subscription Direct Debit information is here.
The Club adopted a new constitution at the E.G.M. on 11 May 2009.
Four categories of membership were approved under clause 2 of the constitution. These are defined as follows:
Applications for membership from the categories Members, Young Members and Associate Members are welcomed.
*The Committee has been conscious of the need to do whatever we reasonably can to encourage school leavers to join the club at the earliest opportunity. Accordingly it has been agreed that, commencing from the summer of 2012, all school leavers would be invited to become members free of any charge until such time as they reach 21 years of age and are not in full time education. At this time they may remain members but would be expected to pay the full membership fee which prevails at the time.
Members may pay their membership fees by Direct Debit using the Club’s GoCardless account.
The current membership fee is £25 per year payable on or around 7th January each year for legacy members and on your joining anniversary for new members.
The Club encourages payment by Direct Debit as it significantly reduces administration and banking fees. If you currently have a Standing Order in place to pay membership fees, please don’t forget to cancel it once your new direct debit is set up.
