It was not until 1950, after a period of considerable staff changes that an August Bank Holiday reunion was restarted but this time under the heading ‘Old Boys Association (Sternians)’ . A committee was formed from representatives of each hundred old boys. From this The Old Sternians’ Association was formally formed in 1952. The name Old Sternians was of course taken from the name of the founder Sydney James Stern, Baron Wandsworth. Funds were collected by Annual Subscription.
As well as the usual officers of Chairman, Vice Chair , Secretary and Treasurer, 7 Regional Secretaries were appointed covering the geographical regions South, West (including Wales), London, East, Midlands, North (including Scotland and Ireland) and Overseas. These regional secretaries were primarily expected to be a focus for all ex-pupils in that region, keeping a record of addresses, collecting subs and, apart from the Overseas region, organising one reunion a year in their region usually at a local restaurant. Subs were mainly collected centrally though. Executive Committee meetings were started, generally in March and October/November each year at Long Sutton, and have continued ever since.
