Pas a pas on va bien loin The Old Stocktonians’ Association

If any group has a reunion planned please let us know and we shall advertise it in our Yearbook (issued November/December each year) and through this website.

Send your contact details to Brian Brand who will process them.

Social Programme

The Old Stocktonians’ Association revived a tradition and organised some social events for the Summer of ’99. These were well supported by Members and provided an opportunity for them (and their families) to meet their former school friends.

At a Committee Meeting the following suggestions were made for possible future visits:

Boat trip to Teesmouth
Baltic Museum, Gateshead
Discovery Museum, Newcastle
Herriot Museum, Thirsk
Anwick Castle and Gardens
Planetarium, Castle Eden Walkway

Note (2001): Due to lack of interest, no visits were arranged.

Visit to Boulby Potash Mine
This was arranged for January 2002. Numbers were very restricted.

Brewery Tour - Saturday 10 July 1999
Following a short video about the ‘Black Sheep Brewery’, we enjoyed a guided tour of the Black Sheep Brewery at Masham, between Leyburn and Ripon. Following the tour, we were able to enjoy a light lunch and a complementary half pint sample of one of the ales (or a soft drink alternative). Children were welcome and a quiz was provided to keep them amused during the tour. The Visitor Centre also has a shop selling lots of gifts and souvenirs as well as (what else!) a bar.

River Cruise - Saturday 24 July 1999
Departing from Castlegate Quay, Stockton, we travelled on the ‘Teesside Princess’ to Yarm via Preston Hall Park and Museum. After a short break at Yarm, we returned to Stockton. The trip provided an opportunity for a tranquil, scenic and relaxing journey during which we not only spotted some of the sights of the river, from an unusual vantage point, but also renewed old acquaintances and made new ones.


The first Association Yearbook was produced in October 1913. Since then it has appeared, in various forms, on a regular basis. Known as ‘The New Stocktonian’ since 1974, the contents provide a means whereby Members of the Association can learn about the activities the Association and of Grangefield School and Stockton Sixth Form College. Most valuable of all however, is the opportunity it provides for Members of the Association, particularly those now residing overseas, to keep in touch with the activities of their contemporaries. Facebook and other social networking sites now largely replaces news of former students in the year book.

The Yearbook has always relied for content on the contributions of Members.
