Welcome to the official website of the OD Union. The purpose of the site is to keep over five thousand old boys in contact with the school and in contact with one another. Technology enables us to reach out to OD’s on every continent and in an instant bring them back to Bishops. However, simply having a great website is not sufficient; to make it an effective meeting place of OD’s across generations, professions, hobbies, interests and geographical locations requires your input. It is your site; make it work for you. Read More
