The ORA was founded in 1908 to enable Old Ruytonians to maintain their association with the School and with one another. Today the membership exceeds 1500. In 1918 a Bursary was established to provide financial assistance for a student wishing to continue her education at Ruyton. All financial members of the ORA receive the association’s newsletter and have the opportunity to attend ORA functions as well as School reunions.
The ORA hosts two main functions on an annual basis at Ruyton - the Leavers' Cocktail Party for the previous Year 12s and a reunion for our senior members.
In 2017 the Golden Girls' reunion is on Saturday 21 October and the one year reunion is on Thursday 3 August. The boarders' reunion is on Saturday 6 May.
The ORA also welcomes its members to attend networking breakfasts to listen to topical speakers and also to the Careers Night at the School, to share information with the girls about their career choices. In 2012 the ORA opened their Heritage Trail, a walking trail encapsulating the history of Ruyton.
