The old scholars association hopes to bring together former students and promote links with the school. As a member of our community you will share our continuing development and success and are encouraged to support our many sporting and social events along with the opportunity to meet and network with former students.

We are very proud of our alumni and are keen to stay in touch with all past students. If you haven’t already we would love you to join so that we can find out what you are doing and to share our news. We are currently working on our archive and welcome any donations of school memorabilia to enhance our collection.

We were recently able to find school records for the family of deceased centenarian Lucy Ingham, née Cooper, which show her talent at debating along with photos of her in the hockey team. To celebrate Lucy’s time at school her family have generously sponsored the Lucy Cooper/Ingham prize which will be awarded for the first time this year. We also received a generous benefaction from Graham Hutton a few years ago which enabled us to create the Hutton Drama Studio. Maintaining connections like these are really important both to us and to those who spent enjoyable times at Heckmondwike Grammar in years past.

If you are in contact with former students and would like to help us keep up to date why not volunteer to be a year representative? Alternatively we would like to invite you to join us on Facebook or LinkedIn.  To stay in touch, contact other old scholars and get news updates, please join the Old Scholars Association.

We are currently in the process of creating an old scholars newsletter to keep you all up to date with developments at Heckmondwike Grammar School.  The intention is to publish it via our Facebook page and send it to all contacts on our Old Scholars database  If you would like to receive the newsletter, or if have anything that you would like to share with us and your fellow Old Scholars please send it to [email protected] . This could be news of what you are doing, career, locations, achievements or sharing memories and remembering former pupils and staff.
