Businesses can do more to help them by mentoring them, allowing them to shadow them, by offering proper work experience places. Marketing Derby also revealed it was moving offices to a city centre location. For the past five years, it has been accommodated by law firm Geldards, on Pride Park, but in the next few weeks it will move to the newly refurbished former magistrates' court in Full Street, now named Riverside Chambers. John Forkin, managing director of Marketing Derby, who hosted the event, said: Key to this is the city centre and that is where we are moving to.
As recently as these courts were improved by being made weather proof by having roofs placed over them. Leading from 'Big School' at the opposite end from the purpose made stage was a major fire escape. In years gone by it was well known for pupils to prove their mettle by sliding down the metal roof of the fire escape. Football team Derby School had a significant football team in the early s, notable for its passing tactics.
A double pass is reported from Derby school against Nottingham Forest in Marchthe first of which is irrefutably a short pass: Helen's House and the Pearson Building many scholars achieved high honours as they progressed with their education.
These were all recorded for posterity by being placed onto 'Honours Boards' which graced the pillars between each of the long 12 feet high windows of 'Big School'. When the school moved in to the brand new Moorway Lane School complex in Littleover these Honours Boards were taken down and refixed within the new school hall along with other artefacts such as war memorial plaques removed from the chapel in the grounds of St. It is recorded that this was due entirely to the efforts made by Mr Norman Elliott, the then head master of the school.
In an enormous rebuilding programme was commenced by the Derby City Council Education Department of Moorway Lane school complex which is now called the Derby Moor Community Sports College and thanks to negotiations made by the Old Derbeian Society these Boards have been taken down professionally and are now stored safely and securely awaiting such time as Derby Grammar School can allocate a suitable position for their re-erection in future years.
Helen's House in remembrance of the 69 old boys of the school killed during the First World Warin the shape of an obelisk. The memorial was unveiled on 11 November by Old Derbeian Lt. Lewis and dedicated by Charles AbrahamBishop of Derby. Helen's House inthe war memorial was moved to the new Moorway Lane site in Littleover. When Derby School was closed inthe memorial was again moved back to St. Helen's House, where it now stands some 15 metres north of its original site. To mark the centenary of the beginning of the First World War on 4 Augustthe Old Derbeian Society arranged for research to be undertaken into the many names of old boys who had served in the two world wars.
Beside including the names, ranks, military service numbers 69 for the First World War and 48 for the Second, in totaldetails have also been collected of the servicemen's military medal awards, local press reports, and details of where each man is buried or remembered officially.
This collection has been assembled into three large volumes, and these were handed to the President of the Old Derbeian Society on 9 Novemberat the conclusion of the Remembrance Day Service held that year, to be held within the Society's archives. During the Remembrance Sunday Services held in both and special emphasis was made to those who had been killed during both the 'Battles of the Somme' July to November and the 'Battle of Passchedaele' July to November Special small wooden crosses with poppies naming the fallen were laid into the lawn fronting the obelisk.
On Sunday 11 Novembera Century since the armistice was signed on 11 Novemberspecial mention was made that one hundred years had elapsed and the opportunity was taken to plant three small wooden crosses into the lawn in front of the Memorial specially recognising the three fighting services, namely the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force RAF which itself was a Century old since its formation from the Royal Flying Corps in The House System and Forms In the school introduced for the first time "The House System" where all the boys in the school were divided into "houses".

Four house names were first proposed: Helen's, Chester, Derwent and Darley. Slowly as House Masters retired the names were revised. Then World War II changed things once again as whilst a good half of the school was evacuated on 2 September to Overton Hall, many pupils were left behind in Derby due to shortage of room - two houses were created at Overton Hall called Greens and Atkinsons whilst those left back in Derby were called Hastings and Mellings.
These names were then retained until Derby School closed down in The houses competed annually for the Cock House Trophy, gained by the house with the greatest number of house points which were awarded by masters for academic, social and sporting achievements.
The school was also divided into forms, which were named by a number and the initial of the form master. The number one was eschewed, so boys started in Form 2. The Fifth and Sixth Forms were divided between lower and upper: For the academic year for the only time at the St.
Helen's House site there was a three form entry intake, but then starting in the academic year it reverted to its normal two form entry. Lessons were held throughout the school, however each form had an allocated form room in either St. Helen's House or B Block. Every student would have a desk in the form room, where he could keep his books; however, around lockers started to be provided on the ground floor of B Block.
Praeposters and monitors Leadership at the school was in the hands of the masters, but, as with most schools, older pupils were given responsibility and were appointed praepostorsknown as props an appellation still used at Uppingham School and Rugby School or monitors.
The title 'prefect' Praefectus was reserved for the Head Master. The praeposters props and monitors were responsible for the behaviour of younger boys outside lessons in the halls and grounds of the school and were permitted to punish minor breaches of discipline. Such punishment would consist of requiring the boy to report to the praepostors' or monitors' room, where the punishment would be handed out. One example was to require the boy to put a number of dots - usually four - in each square of an area of a sheet of graph paper - not as violent as the punishments handed out in the Rugby School of Tom Brown's Schooldays.
The usual punishment during the late s was to issue 'sides. This was to complete writing upon a nominated subject over several 'sides' of lined paper. Opposite the school, in a group of three shops, was a sweet shop, which served as the school tuck shop. Also opposite the school was a Chip shop and the Seven Stars, a former coaching inn, which was popular with staff and older pupils.
A bakery on the corner of King Street and Edward Street supplied half loaves of bread to pupils at 'break time'. The centre of the loaf was removed and eaten and then the crust was filled with crisps. In the early s the nearby Lancaster School buildings were absorbed.

A daily trek from King Street to Orchard Street for school dinner became part of many routines. There were also teaching rooms there, notably for art and for geography, and a large area devoted to woodwork lessons on the ground floor.
It became a place for football in the playground. Conversion to offices Inthe St Helen's House building was declared dangerous because of falling tiles and masonry. The school moved to a new site on Moorway Lane, Littleoverin Plans to convert the building into a hotel were scrapped following the economic downturn and the house was converted into offices instead, the first company taking possession in The first headmaster 'Norman' Elliott and deputy headmaster W.
Mr Elliott retired in and died in late July The traditions of the older boys, uprooted from St Helen's House, influenced the new boys. The running of the school was still steeped in history, with praepostors and monitors, and with the houses still competing for the Cock House trophy.
Latin remained an important subject. Masters teachers still dressed in suits, with gowns and mortar boardsand used corporal punishmentsometimes publicly after lessons. There was a strict dress codeand sixth formers could wear boaters on summer days.
