In 2017 the High School hosted its 40th Anniversary Celebration Ball at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. The evening commemorated the re-opening of the School in Anniesland in 1977.
The fantastic legacy of giving back to the School so selflessly begun by the High School community of the 1970s was honoured, celebrated and reflected in the success of the event. We were delighted that the event raised over £25,000, which went towards providing a High School education for talented, deserving pupils.
It was a wonderful night and a testament to the enduring sense of community that links us all together through the School.
Charity Golf Day
Since its inception in 2016, our annual Charity Golf Day has raised almost £25,000. This day of fun on the course owes its success to the generous participation of High School community members who donate prizes and bring their friendliest competition to the event. We are extremely grateful to those donors who have supported this event and invite all members of the High School community to join us at our next Charity Golf Day.
Every year, the School is delighted to welcome back former pupils for year group reunions. Most recently, around 20 former pupils from the class of 1969 joined us for their 50th Anniversary Reunion. A day of sunny weather, the sharing of fond memories and a tour around the School’s premises proved an excellent way to reconnect with old friends and see how the School continues to thrive.
Would you like a year group reunion?
We are delighted to help former pupils organise their own year group reunions. Former pupils are always welcome back and we would love to see you. Please get in touch via the Development Office.
As our community grows increasingly global in character, we aim to provide ways for those members of the High School community who live outside Scotland to connect. These events include the annual London Club dinner, lunch and evening drinks events to the New York former pupil dinner and the Hong Kong drinks reception.
As we develop our international programme of events, we hope to ensure that every member of our global HSOG Community can remain connected to the School and forge new relationships with other community members in their region.

Ladies Coffee Mornings
A group of sociable, chatty and utterly entertaining ladies meet in the Jimmie Ireland Stand at 10:30am on the first Wednesday of the month to reminisce, catch up and share their stories of life at the School. The group is regularly joined by the Rector. We would be delighted to welcome any ladies back to the School to enjoy coffee and a chat with us.
