Why not join our new Yahoo forum?

Our new Yahoo group forum is especially for you to be able to communicate with us and your old school pals. We would also welcome any memories, stories and queries etc. - perhaps to include in this website. You will find some other features, such as photo sharing,  available too. If you require any help please do not hesitate to email our forum administrator by    

Joining the group is easier than you think. Just click on 'Join Now' and follow the simple instructions, choosing an ID and password.

Please encourage as any Gowertonians as possible to join the group. It will be very interesting to see how many friends will be reunited.

To learn more about Yahoo Groups see below

What is Yahoo! Groups?

Yahoo! Groups is a free service that allows you to bring together family, friends, and associates through a web site and email group. Yahoo! Groups offer a convenient way to connect with others who share the same interests and ideas.

There are millions of groups that you can join in an easy-to-use, privacy-protected, and spam-protected environment. You can use the Yahoo! Groups service at our web site or through any email program.

How much does it cost to use Yahoo! Groups?

Yahoo! Groups is free to both members and moderators. Our service is advertiser-supported and is partially sponsored by advertisements inserted into the email messages you receive.

What is Yahoo! Groups' policy on spam?

Yahoo! Groups has a very strict anti-spam policy. Members may not use our service to send unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, spam, chain letters, multilevel/pyramid schemes, or any other form of solicitation. Learn more about our spam policy.

How do I set up my Yahoo! Groups account?

Joining Yahoo! Groups is easy! To get started you will need to register for a Yahoo! ID and link it to any email addresses you wish to use for Yahoo! Groups.


  1. Click on the Registration link on any Yahoo! Groups page or as shown on this web page above.

  2. Complete the registration form and click on Submit This Form.
    Note: The Yahoo! ID you choose must be unique. It does not need to match your email address.

  3. You should receive an email confirming your registration. Make sure to record your Yahoo! ID and password. You will need these to sign into Yahoo! Groups.

Setting up your account
Sign in to your account to access the following features.

  • Use the Membership Wizard to locate your current subscriptions or to add up to 5 email addresses to your account.

  • My Groups allows you to manage your account and group memberships.

  • Click on the Account Info link near the top-right corner to change your Yahoo! account and profile information.

How do I join a group?

Join via the group page:

  1. Locate a group to join. On the front page of Yahoo! Groups, you can browse the Groups directory or search for a group by topic.

  2. Click on the Join This Group button on front page of any group.

  3. If you are not signed in, you will be asked to enter your Yahoo! ID. If you do not have a Yahoo! ID, you can click on the link New to Yahoo!? Sign up now.

Join the mailing list only:

We highly recommend you join a group via the group page (above). However, if you are familiar with mailing lists, you may join only the mailing list for the group. If you choose this method, you will not have access to all of the group's web features (Photos, Files, Links, Polls, Calendar.) In addition you will not have access to the My Groups page, where you can easily manage all of your memberships and email messages.

To subscribe to a group's mailing list via email, send a blank email to:

  2. Click on the Edit My Groups link at the top of the page.

  3. Look for the group you wish to leave, and check the corresponding box on the right side of the page.

  4. Click Save Changes at the bottom or top of the page.

The group will no longer be listed on the My Groups page, and you will no longer receive messages.
