A Northwood ‘Old Girl’ is automatically a member of the GDST Alumnae Network, which is a unique and vibrant community of over 70,000 former students and staff of the 25 GDST schools.

The GDST Alumnae Network brings together alumnae from all over the world to facilitate connections and professional networks for current and former pupils alike.


1. Come back and visit the school

We hold events and reunions throughout the year at Northwood. Our Summer event for Alumni will be announced in the weeks following Easter. If you’re not able to attend an event, do get in touch and we’ll be delighted to show you around the school another time.

2. Become friends with the School on Facebook

Send a friend request to the alumnae only Facebook page. Keep up to date with news from the school and get back in touch with friends

3. Tell us what you’re doing now

It’s really useful for us to know where you’re working and what you’re doing now. We often ask ‘old girls’ to come back to the school to speak to current pupils about their career and ask them to offer advice. You may also want to share your experiences with other GDST pupils and alumnae through the GDST Alumnae Network.


4. Follow the school on Twitter

With daily updates on school life, this is the place to go to keep up to date!

Follow us on twitter

5. Get back in touch with your classmates

We offer a ‘find a friend’ service to put you back in touch with classmates that you may have lost contact with over the years. If we have their contact details, we’ll send them a message on your behalf asking them to get in touch (we will never directly give out personal contact details).

6. Leave a gift to the school in your will

Remembering the School in your will is a simple way of supporting future Northwood College girls and ensuring that the school continues to thrive. Whatever its size, a legacy directly benefits the School, its pupils and staff. Please email for more information.


All donations are processed by the Girls’ Day School Trust and returned to the school in full. Please click here to make an online donation via the GDST website.

Your generous support will make a real difference to the students. Thank you!

7. Join NWC Connect – our online specialist platform

This platform continues where school left off.  Whether this means talking to Old Girls who have just left and would like to know more about a specific industry, expanding your business links or searching for suitable interns; NWC Connect provides all Old Girls access to a specialised network, with which they already have a unique link.


You can also update your contact details to receive news and book events on the GDST Alumnae Network website. You can also change your mailing and communication preferences when you login.

Relationships are excellent throughout the school, which is indeed a happy place: the pupils are very proud of it and feel a strong sense of belonging.
