About Us

The Development Office is here to build and maintain engagement with our alumni, friends and supporters. 

  • Welcome Image

We want to build strong bonds with our alumni, former staff and supporters so that they feel part of the HSD community. We offer opportunities to stay in touch with old friends thorough events, to become involved with careers guidance for current pupils, careers networking, advocacy and philanthropic support to ensure we can continue to offer the very best learning environment for generations to come.

A range exciting events take place throughout each calendar year, some administered through the Development Office, such as FP Reunion. Others are organised and hosted by the school's Constituency Groups: The Old Boys' Club, The Old Girls' Club, The FPA and the Friends.  These events range from informal gatherings at local pubs, to sporting activities, to the more formal Reunion Dinners and Ceilidhs. There are a number of new and fresh activities that the Development Office offer throughout the year so keep checking our school's Events page for more information or better still, ensure you have 'opted-in' using out Keeping in Touch Form and we will let you know as soon as they are in the diary!

To keep up to date with all our alumni news we also publish an annual magazine Schola Clara which you can see on our Publications page and regularly post exciting news on our social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram so be sure to 'follow' us this way too. 

As well as engaging with our alumni, we actively encourage our HSD Community to support our fundraising efforts in support of the Bursary Fund, our General Fund as well as specific campaigns for Capital Projects across the School.
