SES Alumni

 Here at the Stamford Endowed Schools we are very proud of our alumni. They are a diverse group of men and women who collectively represent the breadth and strength of our curriculum as well as our history and socially inclusive culture.

Many have carved a distinct niche in the world for themselves and our well-known alumni include:

  • A Lord Mayor of the City of London (Nick Anstee 1976)
  • A Ryder Cup Captain (Mark James 1972)
  • The first and only woman pilot in the Red Arrows (Sqn Ldr Kirsty Stewart 1995)
  • England’s last double international (MJK Smith 1951)
  • The creator of Inspector Morse (Colin Dexter 1948)
  • An Emmy award winning actress (Lucy Cohu 1987)
  • A Former Chief of the General Staff (General Sir Mike Jackson 1961)
  • The first woman and youngest person to row solo across the Indian Ocean (Sarah Outen 2003)
  • The first Baron Burghley (William Cecil 1535)

There are two thriving alumni organisations connected to the Stamford Endowed Schools; the Old Stamfordian Club for former Stamford School boys and the Old Girls’ Guild for former Stamford High School girls.
