Introduction :

Formed in 1932, the Old Ilminsterians Association continues to meet annually, opportuning the company of other Old Boys and acknowledging the entity which contributed so much to their formative years - Ilminster Grammar School !

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Association, and the four hundred and thirty year connection of the School with the Minster, the Association funded the design and fitting of a Stained Glass Window in St.Mary's Church in 2007.
