When a pupil leaves Benenden at the end of the Sixth Form, it is far from the end of her association with the School: she remains part of Benenden for life. Our former pupils are called Benenden Seniors and there are more than 5,000 of them around the world.

Benenden maintains a warm relationship with Seniors through the Benenden School Seniors' Association (BSSA). The main objective of the BSSA is to enable Seniors to stay in contact with each other and to associate themselves actively in support of the School. To this end, a number of social functions, reunions and business-orientated networking events take place each year around the country, as well as Seniors' Day itself, when all Seniors are invited to spend the day here at School in the Summer Term.

A school isn't just the building we inhabited but largely the friends and teachers we had.

We send out a monthly e-newsletter during term time featuring news and details of forthcoming events, and each Senior receives the annual Seniors' magazine.

We encourage contact between Seniors and current pupils through seminars and lectures.
