All Forest School pupils become Old Foresters when they leave, and can keep in touch via the Alumni Office. Those who have been at the School for at least two years are welcomed as automatic lifetime members of the Club from the age of 18. They join a community of over 7,000 men and women who all have one thing in common – Forest School.
