The school's original site was under what is now London Bridge Station and moved to Tooley Street sometime in the 19th century, does any one know exactly when and the name of the original site? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:23, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

See 'Carrington' - the answers are the first site was in the vestry hall of the 'new' churchyard close to where the junction of Joiner Street - Duke Street Hill now is from 1571. The second site was on Bermondsey Street north of Crucifix Lane, this part is a tunnel under the railway station, from 1835 (James Field). The third site is that at Tooley Street / Potters Fields from 1855 (Henry Stock). In 1892 this building was replaced, in situ, by the present building (Edward Mountford) Grade II Listed exterior and some interiors. (talk) 10:49, 19 May 2008 (UTC) Tony S

Ummmm, Hugh Broadbend is not the School chaplain anymore. Conveniently, I've forgotten the name of the new chaplain. Im a student at St Olaves btw

The current Chaplain is Andrew McClellan. JJE (talk) 11:24, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Notable alumni[edit]

I'd minded to rid of the dates here. If people want to find out when somebody lived, they only have to click on a hyperlink to follow the relevant bio. See, for example, the entry on Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham CollegeAstral Highway (talk) 11:54, 14 January 2009 (UTC)


The title of this article should really be "St Olave's and St Saviour's Grammar School", which is to my knowledge still the official name of the school. Does anyone object to renaming it? --Pavlos Andronikos (talk) 13:17, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Parking a reference[edit]

The story seems to be developing. Weale, Sally (12 September 2017). "St Olave's chair of governors resigns after exclusion controversy". The Guardian. Retrieved 12 September 2017.  ClemRutter (talk) 20:29, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Indeed it does, this is bizarre and obviously wrong.
In the meantime, could someone deal with "The revelation has revealed" in the lede, please? That is obviously wrong too. MPS1992 (talk) 21:36, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
