Welcome to ROBA!
The Reading Old Blues’ Association (ROBA) was formed in 1904 and helps Old Blues keep in touch with the School and with their fellow alumni.
In addition to receiving the annual Old Blues News, alumni take part in a variety of social and sporting events, including the Annual Dinner, the Daniels Cup cricket match and Reunion Tea, and other Daniels Cup sporting events against the school.
If you would like to register as an Old Blue in order to receive the Old Blues News and invitations to Old Blue events, please contact Blue Coat’s Alumni Administrator Marjie Thorne at firstname.lastname@example.org or (0118) 933 5828.

The School has agreed to allow Old Blues to use some of the sports facilities outside school hours. Please read the attached document for details on what, how and when.
