Joining the Society

We have been asked to look at the possibility of using the website for people to join the society. This is an important update and will allow potential members to join the society directly from the site and pay their fees accordingly.

We will be posting more on this after our next committee meeting in April and,of course, will let you all know the outcome of the discussions.

Where Are They Now?

Our Old Derbeians follow all sorts of careers. We were so grateful to Emma, Caitlin, Alan, Henry and Connor giving up their time to come back to school for our Careers Fair on Wednesday to talk about what they are doing now, who they are working for and where they are studying.

In Memoriam 2019 Page

A sad task indeed,  but one which we feel our members appreciate.

In the future, where possible, we will add an obituary with a photo of any Old Derbeian who passes, subject to permission from the surviving family or next of kin, of course.

The new page can be found in the members’ area and we feel the design is far better suited to the subject matter.

Annual Dinner 2019

The date for the Annual Dinner has now been set as Saturday 22nd June 2019 at The Grange Banqueting Suite, Burton Road Derby.

The new date in June rather than November, as in previous years, is to hopefully attract more members and guests and also allow younger members of the society together with students, former students and staff of DGS to be able to attend.

Please make a note in your diary and further information will be posted nearer the date.

AGM & Committee Meeting 5th Feb 2019

A lively meeting for the AGM and the first convening of the committee going forward for 2019. Nice to see DGS represented by Head of Sixth Form, Karen Stebbings, and our two pupils from the school representing the society.

Much was discussed about the future of the society and its events etc. which will be sent out to the membership in due course. Thanks to the committee members who volunteered to complete another year in their respective offices, we know its a labour of love, but it is well appreciated by all in the society.
