The DPSA is an active group of Past Students who volunteer their time and talents to promote esprit de corps among Downlanders.

Since January 2013, all Downlands Past Students are deemed to be lifetime members of the DPSA.
This means that if we have your contact details you will receive quarterly email updates, electronic copies of FORTES magazine and the new SPOTLIGHT newsletter (or, if you'd prefer, a printed copy) and invitations to events at the College.

The DPSA Management Committee meets in the DPSA Room in Tyson Manor at 5.30pm on the fourth Monday of most months (term time). All are welcome.

What do we do?
