A bit about us and why you may enjoy joining us.
The Chester Association of Old King’s Scholars is the social and professional Association for former King’s Chester students founded in 1865. CAOKS is run by former pupils for the benefit of former pupils. CAOKS is wholly autonomous and all King’s alumni are welcome to become part of “The Association”.
As the principal function of CAOKS is to promote inclusivity, friendship and interaction among the alumni various social events are promoted as well as providing members with an exclusive and very active “CAOKS Group” on the professional networking site LinkedIn. All alumni, whether members or not, are welcome to join in with these CAOKS organised activities.
An Events Card and Year Book is published annually and regular Newsletters keep members in this country and abroad informed.
Although functioning independently of the School one of our aims is to support the foundation of 1541 that created the King’s School. Thus each year the Association gives significant assistance to the School Community.
A wide variety of other social events take place throughout the year including a President’s Supper and London Supper, a Recent Leavers Evening, Bowls, Golf and Snooker tournaments. Sports events include rowing, cricket and hockey versus the School. See Events for more details.
The Association’s charity arm supports the Old King’s Scholar Exhibition award, (a three year award given to the most outstanding student going to University) and the Baty Overseas Voluntary Service Award (given for approved voluntary work in the Third World). See Charity for more details.
