Following a gap year at Dean Close Prep School and Tewkesbury Abbey,

I graduated from Bath Spa University with an MMus. During my time in Bath, I worked with the renowned chamber choirs Noctis and Bath Camerata.

 I performed as a guest soloist on tours to France, Czech Republic and China, as well as featuring at the English music festival and BBC Proms.

It was also in Bath that I met my wife, India. We have been happily married now for three years.

 I have since turned my attention to teaching and in August 2018, we moved out to Thailand,

where I took up the post of Assistant Director of Music at Rugby School Thailand.

Rory Osmond: I spent some time in South Africa before heading to Loughborough University to study Politics.

Since then I have spent five years in London working in Fintech where I am now specialising in Financial Crime as a product manager.

After a brief stint working in a Stroke Rehabilitation Centre in Brunei I decided it wasn’t for me. Now I am happily working in Human Resources for an Islamic Bank in Brunei.

Over the years, I have mostly kept in touch with Ben Collings and Samson Wong, no surprise there really! I’ve even had the honour of being an usher at their respective weddings.

Charlie Usher: After leaving Oundle I took a gap year in Morzine, France where I trained as a ski instructor.

I then went on to study Mechanical Engineering at the university of Warwick. To see if the degree was worth the paper it was written on, two other engineers and I took part in the ‘Mongol Rally’.

For this we drove a 10 year old Vauxhall Agila 10k miles from London to Mongolia, all whilst having to fix any issues we found with the car along the way.

After university, I completed an Engineering graduate programme at Rolls-Royce, learned to code and met my girlfriend Lauren.

Two years ago, I left the Company to take a role in HSBC as a python developer.

I now live in the Derbyshire countryside having bought a house here last year and keep active by going on plenty of walks and playing golf.

Alistair H: After leaving Oundle, I returned to Kenya where I qualified as a professional field guide, working on safaris in Kenya and Tanzania.

 After a few years pretending to work at Newcastle, interspersed with odd jobs around the globe
