OLA 160th Anniversary Celebration
NEW DATE: Saturday 17 April 2021

2020 marks 160 years since the founding of the OLA school by the Sisters of Mercy in 1860. This anniversary year was meant to culminate in a day of celebration on Saturday 5 September 2020. However, owing to the restrictions we expect to still be in place on large gatherings in September we are cancelling the event and rescheduling it for Saturday 17 April 2021. Everyone who has registered for the September event is being contacted to confirm they wish to attend in April next year.

All OLA alumni and families are invited to this very special day. Entry to the celebration is by ticket only.

To register for your free entry ticket, click on the registration link below. Lunch will be available on the day at a cost of £5 per head for everyone over age 11. All younger guests will lunch free. Full details of the programme will be sent to you six weeks prior to the event.   

We look forward to welcoming you back to OLA in 2021.


All tickets available for our 160th Anniversary have now been taken up. A waiting list registration is available on the button below. If tickets become available you will be notified.
