The Old Oaks

The Old Oaks is the alumni and supporter community of Somerset College.

The Old Oaks Association, as one of the custodians of the College ethos, serves to give important guidance to Somerset College. A young school such as Somerset College, needs custodians to embed important aspects of what will become their heritage so that it can grow into a greater place that reflects some of the noble intentions of the founding parents and students.  The Old Oaks Association has been created for a very simple reason; to promote fellowship and to keep everyone connected to the school. One day we hope that our members will become benefactors; by sharing their time and skills we believe that the Old Oaks will contribute to the health and prosperity of the school.

We want Old Oaks to be proud ambassadors of the College. This is our school and the Old Oaks have a vital role to play in keeping the College a special place filled with opportunity, friendship and love.

We encourage Old Oaks to return and visit the College. To keep up with our growing community, we ask that you login to our Old Oaks Alumnet database which will give you access to a number of features.
