New Member subscription rates are £20 per annum (by Direct Debit only) for the first three years and thereafter are payable at the standard rate.

About the OHA

The OHA has a long and successful history (since 1888) and enjoys close, friendly links with the School. One of its principal aims is to encourage members of the OHA in all parts of the world to keep in touch.  Its main activities include: 

  • Social Programme:
    the OHA organises a wide and diverse social programme including musical entertainments, wine tastings, visits to interesting venues, galleries, theatres etc, University socials, a black tie Annual Dinner at Haberdashers’ Hall, regular lunches for retired members, close links with school CCF activities. Event locations vary from the School and OH clubhouse to central London and regional venues.
  • Networking:
    connecting Haberdashers in similar professions or with similar interests (e.g. the City, medicine, media) through events, talks, directories & informal contacts.  The OHA also works with the School to enable boys to benefit further from the expertise and knowledge of the diverse community of Old Haberdashers, for example through careers advice and work experience opportunities.
  • Reunions:
    Year group, anniversary and regional reunion events
  • Sports:
    Active and successful Cricket, Rugby and Football clubs (based at its Borehamwood sports ground) and Golf and Rifle societies which field regular teams in league and cup competitions.
