Membership is now open to ALL former pupils or staff, no matter how short a time you were at Hawnes.

Life membership is still only a single payment of £10, which entitles you to attend the annual lunch and AGM and receive the newsletter.

If you have been a life member, but have lost touch, then you can rejoin without paying any more subs.

Contact us now to join the OHA or to renew your membership.

Members should hear from us at least twice a year – the newsletter and the AGM invitation.If you have not heard from us recently it may be because your address is out of date or your email has bounced back, so please Contact us now so Sue can update her records!

We look forward to hearing from you!


If you would like to suggest any links that might interest fellow members, please contact the Webmaster.

If you have the skills and inclination to brush up this website please get in touch with the Webmaster!

The Old Hagensians now have a Facebook group. Members range from some of the oldest to those were at Hawnes when it closed. Girls have been able to make contact with old friends with whom they lost contact when the school closed so suddenly. Reunions have been arranged and girls living close to one another, but from different generations, have met up. We have also been able to welcome a number of new members to the OHA via the group.

Have a look now!

It is a closed group – if you have trouble joining please contact the Webmaster including your name at Hawnes and the dates you were there
