AROPS is open to representatives of all school alumni societies and professional alumni functions in schools, and provides a forum for the exchange of best practice and sharing of experiences, ideas and solutions. We have a wide range of members from small prep schools through to established societies in leading public schools.
The annual subscription rate is currently £50 per Club/School/Association to include three nominated representatives.

As alumni engagement has been increasingly professionalised, and political narratives around independent education have dramatically changed, AROPS has evolved to widen its membership base.
