About the Old Hulmeians Association

The Old Hulmeians Association (OHA) is the alumni association for former and current staff and former students of William Hulme’s Grammar School, Manchester.

If you have previously attended,  or work or have worked at the school, you are an Old Hulmeian (OH). This website is for you.

There is a committee of volunteers that help all Old Hulmeians reconnect. We meet regularly to organise events including  Annual (Manchester) and Biennial (London) Dinners, an active Golf Society schedule , and monthly Cross Country Section meets (see the Events and Social Groups items on the menu for more info).

There is also an online archive of the schools magazine under The Hulmeian on the menu where you can browse through many past editions

And we can arrange tours of the school and help put OH’s in contact with each other (use the Connect menu item to contact us for these).

Finally, we also maintain a facebook page, have a Linkedin profile and an email address, details of which can be accessed via the Connect menu item.

Please consider joining us formally. Subscription costs £15 per year for those aged over 30 (and membership is free until your 30th birthday) and gives you further benefits. See the Join menu item for more information and a joining form.
