The London Nautical Old Boys Association would like to extend a warm welcome to all former pupils. The association exists to help former pupils of LNS to keep in contact with each other and with the school. The school has a particularly long and distinctive history and the aim is keep that ethos alive. The Old Boys Association has at least one function  per annum with an Alumni committee which meets throughout the year. The annual event is normally held in The Malone Hall or as in 2012 alongside The Parents Teachers Association on the River Thames. 

The associations helps and supports the school in many ways: Annual Prizes for Prize Giving, eminent former pupils coming into school to mentor and talk to pupils, assistance with work experience and internships and careers day.

Thank you message from one of our Alumni after a recent visit

Thank you for the tour of the school and to meet some of the masters; not forgetting Harry and Josh, the two prefects who showed us around and introduced us, please thank them again on our behalf; I suspect Harry in particular will do well in life.  It was good to see and feel the enthusiasm which exists at the school, although somewhat diversified from my days which were totally aimed at producing Merchant Navy Navigating Officers.  I have taken the liberty of attaching a photo of myself aged 14 in Year 3 (3Y), Mr Young was my form master, the school uniform now would be much kinder to both students and parents.

Thanks again,

Joe & Ursula Murphy

"A bench was commissioned by the parents of two old boys of the school who were tragically killed on a bus crash in Thailand. The bench is situated on the South Bank by the ITV studios and appropriately facing the River Thames with the names of the boys and the London Nautical School inscription." The Thames carries her sons everywhere".
