The UK Friends of Auckland Grammar School is a charitable trust established in 2005 for the purpose of advancing and promoting education and in particular any educational and charitable objectives connected with Auckland Grammar School.

The trustees also provide a means for connecting Old Boys across the UK and Europe and keep them up to date with current School developments. Old Boys have been running formal get-togethers since 1924, when 15 UK based Old Boys gathered for a dinner at the Pall Mall Restaurant, Haymarket. Official records in the School Chronicle of the time describe the event as "an informal and most enjoyable occasion". The trustees encourage networking opportunities among Old Boys living in the UK and Europe by hosting an annual reunion in London.

Mary FenwickThe trustees of the UK Friends of Auckland Grammar School also assist in raising funds for the Auckland Grammar School Foundation Trust.

The Auckland Grammar School Foundation Trust's aims are to promote the advancement of education by charitable means through the Academic Endowment Fund (AEF), designed to help keep our best teachers in the classroom by allowing the Board of Trustees to recruit, retain and reward top teachers.
