The NLCS Community

The NLCS Community

NLCS is a community for life and the School’s relationship with its pupils extends far beyond their time at Canons.

Old North Londoners (ONLs) are a unique and dynamic group of individuals whose careers and life experiences span an incredible array of sectors, choices and countries. Whatever their age, there is an instant bond amongst ONLs and an amazing willingness to support each other.


Each year, we aim to offer more young people the opportunity to experience a North London Collegiate School education through a bursary. In doing this, we don’t just ensure that pupils of ambition and potential can join our community; we also maintain our rich, social mix and diverse community.

We are immensely grateful for the support we receive, which allows us to fund more young people to be able to come to North London and enjoy the opportunities that a NLCS education provides. We would love you to watch our video below. If you would like to make a donation to the appeal please click here.


Through The Old North Londoners’ Association (ONLA), we help ONLs to keep in touch with each other at special events and reunions, to maintain links with the School and, via the Career Networking Service, to receive or offer career assistance. Membership is free and open to all past pupils of the School.


If you are getting in contact for the first time or would like to update any of your details, including telling us about a career change, please email

We love to stay in touch with ONLs. Please visit our Stay in Touch page for the ways in which we can keep you updated about news, invite you to reunions and events, and help you be part of the fantastic and vibrant NLCS community.

We look forward to hearing from or seeing you soon!
