The Old Maidstonian Society was founded in 1884 and currently has nearly 1,500 members. The function of the Society is to facilitate continuing contact between the school and its former students and staff. It also administers awards for past and present Maidstonians, and has an associated charitable trust. See the Activities page and its subpages for fuller details.

We seek to involve OMs in the events organized by the Society and the School listed on the Events page, and encourage OMs to take part in the Mentoring scheme. We also hope they will contribute to our efforts to raise funds for the Society’s charitable purposes (see under Awards and under Fundraising )

As well as this site, there are Old Maidstonians groups on Facebook (www.facebook.com/groups/OldMaidstonianSociety), Twitter (http://twitter.com/OldMaidstonians, with handle @OldMaidstonians), LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/160468) and Friends Reunited which you may wish to join if you are a member at one of those sites. [Note added Jan 2016: Friends Reunited is about to close]. The Facebook and Twitter groups are co-managed by two members of the Committee and the LinkedIn group is co-managed by the Society’s webmaster.

The website also generates an RSS feed (several, in fact). The main one can be connected to direct at http://www.oldmaidstonians.org.uk/feed/ or via various of the RSS feed directories. If your favourite RSS feed directory does not offer it let us know.
