This site was set up mainly for the benefit of Old Boys who were pupils at Harlow College in Old Harlow, Essex. The school first opened in May 1862 for the "superior education of sons of gentlemen", sadly the school closed in 1965 and those old boys remaining moved onto other schools..
The age of the current Old Boys range from their 60's right through to their 90's. There is still a core membership who return annually for the AGM and Dinner. Of course the prospect of renewing friendships, or otherwise, of old pals and the bar of the the Green Man may have something to do with the success.
Get in Touch
We would love to include your personal profiles and updates. Everyone is curious to know what happened to their school
contemporaries and we ask you to post your own story on this site. Send your stories, in any format, to the webmaster.
We would also like to make this site the repository for photos and memorabilia of your time at school, these include photos of pupils, teachers and staff and any other papers or photos you have. We also invite you to post
your own personal photo gallery.
Just click the various links for explanations. We also, of course, want
to display as many of the official school
year photos and house photos as possible. In the end, the Old Harlovian
website will only be as good as you, the old boys, are prepared to make
it, so your co-operation is eagerly sought. Oh, and don't forget to
visit the school shop!
