Follow us on social media:


MCB FPA was founded in 2003 as a result of the merger of the Methodist College Belfast Old Girls and Old Boys Associations. We aim to help Old Collegians keep in touch with each other and to support the College and its past and present pupils. 

The MCBFPA  has a rolling programme each year of everything from golf tournaments and football  matches, lunches and  dinners with entertaining, expert  speakers to  table quizzes testing our knowledge (or lack thereof) on esoteric subjects.  All are an opportunity to meet up with old friends and make new ones, so we’d be delighted if you join us at one, some or all of the regular annual events.

There is an active Facebook page ( and if you prefer, we email and send fliers about the annual events calendar.
Please contact us if you are former pupil who is not on our mailing list but would like to receive notification in the future, if you would like to become a member of MCB FPA (aka Old Collegians) or if you wish to make a gift to the MCB FPA or to the College.
