The Downian Society

Proposed new site – under construction

The Society's current web site is at www.thedownsmalvern.org.uk/The-Downian-Society.

Welcome

The Downian Society is open to past pupils of The Downs Malvern and the three school which eventually merged to create it:

Honorary membership is also offered to members of staff when they leave.

The Downs Malvern is now well established and has strong links with Malvern College. The current Headmaster, staff, pupils, Governors and parents are keen to build on much of the history that the three founding schools and their communities have established, whilst continuing to innovate and improve.The Downian Society has a strong part to play in maintaining these historical links.

Membership

Past pupils or staff may contact the Society secretary as below and he can arrange for you to join.

The Society currently has well over a 1,000 members, details of whom are held by the secretary.

Visits and Reunions

The 2014 reunion allowed members to visit on a Saturday morning in the summer term and see the pupils working at various hobbies before and after break and visit the archive room which at the moment has a temporary home in 3 Downsland Cottage, next to the new sports hall.. This was followed by the AGM and buffet or picnic on the field, with a cricket match between the Old Boys and the Headmaster’s eleven. We expect the 2015 reunion to follow a similar pattern.

The school always gives a warm welcome visits to former pupils. If you let the School Secretary know beforehand she will happy to arrange for you to be shown around school. Please contact Pam Hill on 01684 544104. Queries about The Downs Malvern can be addressed to the Headmaster (asc@thedowns.malcol.org) during term time.

Archives

The Archives are currently being catalogued and, we hope, will eventually be relocated in the wooden hut on the main school site. We always welcome additions (donations) to our already extensive archives particularly Badgers as we no longer have a complete set. We do not have any copies of newsletters at present and this could form an interesting addition.

Contact

All queries about the Society should be addressed to the Downian Society Secretary, Malcolm Robertson. He may be contacted via email at 1917mal@gmail.com

Proposed features include; a secure private area for document sharing, and a secure membership database with mailing list.
