People & Events

We are very proud of our Academicals and are always keen to hear from you.

Around 3000 former pupils are registered on our Academical database. This figure grows all the time as pupils leave the school each year and as we renew contact with other Academicals through our widening channels of communication.

The Kelvinside Academy Experience lasts a lifetime and our Academicals are welcome to visit the School all year round.

Office Bearers play an important role within the Club and assist with the organisation and success of Academical events throughout the year. If you would like to find out more information on how to become involved please contact Elaine Solman.

Upcoming Events

Upcoming events are listed below and can also be viewed via our School Calendar.

The Annual Academical Dinner is held in March each year and the date of Friday 21st March has been set for the 2025 dinner. For further information please contact Development Manager, Elaine Solman.

Join us for a hearty breakfast, network with old and new friends and share your business experiences with like-minded people. The next event is taking place on Friday 20 September.

To date our Breakfast speakers have included British political journalist Laura Kuenssberg, Colin Neill (1972), former Director at Diageo, Gareth Gaston (1992), Vice President, Virtual Banking of U.S. Bank, John Boyle, Entrepreneur and Peter C Brown, Former Scotland Rugby Captain.

We have a full calendar of fantastic events throughout the year and we would also be delighted to see you and your family at Balgray on a Saturday morning to support our pupils when they are playing Cricket, Hockey or Rugby. This is a great social occasion with our wonderful PTA supplying breakfast rolls and hot drinks in the Miller Drummond Suite.

We are also delighted to help you reconnect with old school friends either directly or by attending regular events throughout the year. The Annual Academical Dinner is also a fantastic opportunity to connect with former pupils from around the globe. These events are a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends, share memories, tour the School and reminisce about glory days on the “Field of Dreams” or on the Hockey pitch. 

The Junior Committee will be planning two annual events, one to be held at GHK and one to be held at Balgray. We will be in touch as soon as these dates have been agreed.
