- organises social events in Portsmouth, London, Sydney, Oxford and elsewhere;
- provides financial support to current and former pupils of the School via the OP Charity.
All former pupils of The Portsmouth Grammar School are encouraged to join, no matter when they left the School. Applications may be made online via the Club's web site, where contact details for the Club are also published. There is no joining fee or annual subscription.
OPs (as they are known) are invited to annual sports fixtures against the School, in July and December. Other events include an AGM in February, Autumn Supper in October and Annual Dinner in December.

The Sydney Luncheon Table meets once a quarter, usually the second Tuesday of February, May, August and November at the Royal Automobile Club in Sydney.
The Oxford Dining Club meets once a year, in May.
