Foundation & 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:

  • Mark James (OS 72): A Ryder Cup Captain
  • MJK Smith (OS 51): England’s last double international
  • Colin Dexter (OS 48): The creator of Inspector Morse
  • Lucy Cohu (OS 87): An Emmy award winning actress
  • Gen Sir Mike Jackson (OS 61): Former Chief of the General Staff 
  • Sqn Ldr Kirsty Stewart (OS 95): The first and only woman pilot in the Red Arrows
  • Sarah Outen (OS 03): The first woman and youngest person to row solo across the Indian Ocean
