Ermysted’s Old Boys’ Society

Welcome to the updated Ermysted’s Old Boys’ Society website.

Our website has had a lick of paint… please bear with us for now - more of the old stuff that was here will be back soon!

We are the Old Boys’ Society for Ermysted’s Grammar School, founded circa 1492 in Skipton, North Yorkshire.

The Old Boys’ Society is a longstanding and important part of the Ermysted’s community. Through its close contact with the school it actively supports the current students through the kind generosity of members - both financially and in time commitments to support with careers advice.

Following a hiatus through the pandemic, our in-person events returned with an Ermysted’s Old Boys Open Day and Barbecue on Saturday 1st July 2023 at school.

Thank you to all who attended!


As well as providing opportunities for social interaction at our events, one of the main aims of the Ermysted’s Old Boys’ Society is to raise money to support the current generation of pupils at EGS.

We provide funding for projects within the school - both large and small. Everything from supporting the creation of new buildings such as the Sixth Form Centre (pictured) to purchasing new IT equipment or supporting the School Colours programme.

If you would like to ‘give something back’ to your old school, this is the ideal way to do just that - please give what you can.


Please email with details of any Old Boys you know who have recently passed away. We maintain a list of obituaries on this website and their names are read out at our events each year.

Archives and more.

Coming soon we’ll be adding our digital archive and other historic information about Ermysted’s.
