Welcome to the Old Decanian Society 

The Society began in 1891 with a few members but there are now over 4000 members living throughout the world with whom we have contact, ages ranging from 18 to nearly 100!  We aim to keep them all informed about the Society's events. We endeavour to provide a first class, personal service to everyone who needs the OD office.

Please email: or phone 01242 258048

The aims of the Society are…..


“To enable ODs to keep in touch with each other and the School by arranging regular social and sporting activities.”


“To further the interests of the Dean Close Schools.”



Members of the OD Society can be involved in or attend:


Summer Lunch
