Famous Old Boys
There is no such a thing as a typical Fullerian. We have amongst our Old Boys sportsmen, clergymen, medics, lawyers, academics, businessmen, writers, philanthropists, actors and artists. What they all share is the School ethos which has for generations inspired intellectual curiosity, a competitive spirit, creative thinking, social responsibility and leadership. Most of all it has nurtured friendships and an affection for the School. Some notable Old Boys include :
