OJ Events

The Development Office hosts a number of events over the year for the St John’s community and the OJs in particular.  In Autumn Term, the annual OJ Dinner is always a lovely occasion when we have chance to hear from an interesting guest speaker and catch up over a drinks and dinner.  Throughout the year, we have smaller events including professional networking groups and a popular series of London Walks and Summer Term sees the unmissable OJ Day which is a fantastic chance to relax in the sunshine (we hope!) with family and friends for an informal day of fun and great food. 

Make sure we have your contact details so that we can stay in touch and keep you informed about OJ events and email us at if you would like any further information about any forthcoming events.  We also often host other events at St John’s to which OJs would be very welcome so keep an eye on our events page for details of these.

Old Johnian Dinner 

Friday 5 June 2020 ​​​​​​​
7.00pm Drinks on the Quad
3-course meal in the Dining Hall

This year the OJ Dinner celebrates the 30th anniversary of girls at St John’s and we are very pleased that Mary Arnal has agreed to be guest speaker. Mary will best be remembered as much-loved Housemistress of South from 2005 until 2010. She went on to become Headmistress of St Teresa’s Prep School in Effingham and has since been Head at a number of other leading Girls Schools as well.

The OJ Dinner is a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends in the beautiful environment of the St John’s Quad and the Dining Hall. A perfect way to spend a summer’s evening!
Tickets:  £40 or £20 for Leavers from 2014 onwards
