The information portal for the alumni of Chesterfield School.

WELCOME....

.... to the newly refreshed Old Cestrefeldian Society website. Hopefully you will prefer the updated structure and navigation.

If you encounter any problems, please email details to the Webmaster.

Chesterfield School, formerly Chesterfield Grammar school, was founded in 1594 and continued to educate boys from Chesterfield and further afield until 1991 when educational reorganisation resulted in its closure and the hand over of its buildings to Brookfield Community School.

For most of this long history (until 1967) it was located on Sheffield Road on the site now occupied by Chesterfield College.

The Old Cestrefeldian Society seeks to provide means of linking old boys and masters through its Annual Reunion (normally on the last Friday of April) and other occasions. For details of these, please consult the News & Events page of this site.

It has also created a charitable trust to preserve items relating to the school and to provide targetted educational assistance to young people in the Chesterfield area.

As there was no official repository of School records, most of the contents of this website have been derived from material provided by alumni. If you have access to other material of interest please contact the Webmaster and the OC Trust.

It is hoped that alumni will derive pleasure from browsing the content of this site and others will learn something of what became a very special institution to most who crossed its threshold.
