As a result of a scheme initiated many years ago, young men on leaving their Heads' Conference (HMC) school could join the Public School's Club for seven years with a letter of recommendation from their head of school. This tradition was carried on following the merger of the Public School's Club with the East India Club in 1972.
The years, and inflation, have taken their toll on the pound, but the spirit of the scheme remains, and the current fee (at time of writing £615) represents outstanding value with nothing more to pay until the age of 25 and no joining fee.
The J7s are full East India Club members, enjoying all the facilities provided by the club, and currently account for some 40% of the total membership.
To apply please contact the Headmaster, Mr Tyrone Howe, who will propose you, or write to/email The Membership Secretary for more information. Please note that this membership option must be taken up within 18 months of leaving school.
A programme of events is organised by the East India Club throughout the year, including dinners and cocktail parties, a golf society and cricket team, chess and snooker competitions as well as access to cricket at Lord's, our box at Ascot and rugby internationals at Twickenham.
