The Beaulieu Foundation is always keen to meet with Foundation members and we hold regular events for members to enjoy.
Why not arrange your own class reunion? We are very happy to help you trace your 'old' friends and give advice and tips on arranging your event. We can even hold the event at School for you if you would prefer that.
Please also send us details and photographs of any reunion events you might have already held and we will publish them on the website and hopefully give other year groups some ideas!
Class of 83 Reunion - by Stephanie Marett
In June 2016 the Class of '83 reunited at the Grand Hotel for lunch, to celebrate our upcoming 50th birthdays and time at School, as well as to reminisce about the sights and sounds of Beaulieu and our teenage years.
We were Bernadette Cooper’s (then Rebours) first ever class when she returned to Beaulieu after graduating as a teacher from University.
Wendy Channing organised the entire event, ensuring a DVD with all the sights and sounds of the 80's played on a big screen in the restaurant, as well as providing party bags of retro sweets.
A few couldn’t be there in person but managed to stay in contact during the event via the powers of technology.

1920's ball to celebrate Sister Marie Louise's 90th birthday
To mark these special 90 years a 1920’s Ball was also organized, which took place at the Merton Hotel on Friday 21st November. 330 guests attended, with the guest of honour being Sister herself. Everyone fully embraced the theme and 1920’s costumes were everywhere. The Art Department had made a fantastic backdrop for our photo booth and photos were taken by our A Level Photography students. During the Pre-Dinner drinks the Drama Department put on a lively 1920’s themed performance followed by the Gatsbys band, with our very own Leigh Saunter playing the Saxophone. Dinner was held in the Belvedere room and the guests were greeted with tables decorated in 1920’s decadence, Moet bottles filled with ostrich feathers and candles everywhere. It was a lively affair, with Tony Gardner singing during dinner and again with the Gatsbys, which proved hugely popular. The evening then rounded off with a DJ. A truly memorable evening was had by all!
Diamond Jubilee 2011
Our Diamond Jubilee celebrations were a great success, so thank you so much for all your support. We enjoyed a very successful Diamond Jubilee Ball at the Hotel de France on Saturday 15th January where we raised £14,000 and a fantastic Diamond Jubilee Concert on Saturday 26th March at the Jersey Opera House, where £6,000 was raised. The PTA Diamond Jubilee Fete, held on Saturday 2nd July, was also a huge success, raising over £4,500 to invest back into the school. The celebrations culminated in our Diamond Jubilee Musical, The Sound of Music, at the Arts Centre during December, a resounding success and complete sell out.
Diamond Jubilee Ball – Saturday 15th January 2011
The Beaulieu Diamond Jubilee ball took place on Saturday 15th January at the Hotel De France. We enjoyed a four course meal, a champagne reception sponsored by JT,entertainment and dancing. The evening was a complete sell out and proved to be a memorable night filled with fun and laughter, celebration and reminiscing!
Many thanks to those of you who attended the ball and to the many helpers I had supporting me throughout the preparation. I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your evening!
Thanks to the generosity of our guests at the ball over £8,000 was raised on the night through both the raffle and the auction, with a total of £14,000 being raised through the event overall.
Diamond Jubilee concert – Saturday 26th March 2011
Our Diamond Jubilee Concert, took place on Saturday 26th March at the Jersey Opera House and was a resounding success!
The event was a complete sell out, with over 600 people attending, including the Lt Governor and Mrs Ridgway and everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy their evening.
The concert was a real showcase for the many talents of our past and present Beaulieu pupils, staff and supporters of the school and a perfect way to continue our Diamond Jubilee celebrations in style!
Thank you so much to those of you who gave up your time to take part and to those who helped with chaperoning, lighting, flying and planning such a fantastic event. Thanks also, of course, to all of you who came along on the night to help celebrate with us!
We raised almost £6,000 from the concert, a great achievement, and this money will be invested back into the school to support a number of school projects currently underway.
Calling all Beaulieu 'Old Boys!'
In June 2011 the Beaulieu Foundation held an event at school specifically for our Beaulieu 'old boys' to enable them to catch up and reminisce during our special diamond jubilee year. The event was a great success with over 45 'old boys' attending.
A number of the 'old boys' have asked if another event can be organised in the near future and we are very keen to do this. To make it even more of a success next time round we are keen to build our database of male past pupils. We'd like to hear from any Beaulieu 'old boys' who attended the School since its opening in 1951 so if you yourself are an 'old boy' or you know of a gentleman who attended Beaulieu in the past please do get in touch.
We're also keen to get in contact with anyone who may have boarded at Beaulieu in the 1950s or 1960s. We have already had one lady contact us to say she boarded in 1953 and we're very keen to hear from anyone else who would be happy to tell us about their time here.
