Hello and welcome to the webpage for Methodist College Belfast Former Pupils Association (aka Old Collegians or MCBFPA).

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 next few years will be exciting for both Methody and the MCBFPA as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the opening of the school.   We intend that the sesquicentennial will have something for everyone. The aim is to showcase Methody’s ethos, history and origins as well as its pupil’s strengths, successes and achievements since 1868.

The 150th celebrations will be throughout the academic year 2018/2019.

Apart from the anniversary celebrations and events, 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’s 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.

Thank you and I look forward to meeting you.
