Join Our Alumni

The Dukies’ Association

The Dukies’ Association (TDA) offers automatic free enrolment, and welcomes and unites past and present Dukies of all ages. TDA was formed in 2013 after it was recognised that many past pupils wanted to 'give back' to their School through donations of time, ideas, careers support and funding. The official launch of The Dukies' Association took place at the School's original site, Duke of York's HQ (now Saatchi Gallery) in London on Friday 27 September 2013.

Via The Dukies’ Association you will be able to:

  • Keep up to date with news via a regular ‘Dukie News Update’ email and annual Dukie News magazine.
  •  Stay connected to your peers at various events held throughout the year.
  • Network with other Dukies.
  • Keep us updated with any special news and achievements after leaving DOYRMS.
  • Enthuse future students at DOYRMS – Dukies inspiring Dukies.




Updating Your Details

If you are already a member of The Dukies' Association and have recently moved house, changed email address or telephone number, please email to keep us up-to-date.


Throughout the year, various events are held for the alumni to reunite and get together. Sport continues for many out of the School gate, and Dukies often return to play against the School’s top team, currently we host Cricket and Hockey. We also have our annual trip to Twickenham to watch the Army V Navy Rugby match, a great, fun event for all.

Remembrance Weekend remains close to all Dukies’ hearts, a ticketed Reunion Dinner is held on the Saturday evening, a time to reflect and catch up with peers and staff. On Remembrance Sunday we invite all alumni to join us for the day. All event information is sent out to Dukies that have signed up to The Dukies’ Association. 



The Panel

The Dukies' Association Panel is chaired by Dukie Simon Daglish, Walking with the Wounded founder and Deputy Managing Director of ITV. TDA Panel Members give their own time twice a year to attend meetings in London to guide the development of TDA and discuss future; events, fundraising, reunions, networking opportunities and careers support. The Panel is made up of a good mix of male and female Dukies from different generations and with different strengths to offer, with management and administration services supplied by the School.
