Alex Gill left Derby Grammar School in 2003. He studied Geography at Newcastle University and is now Managing Director at CBRE, a global full-service real estate services and investment organisation.
“My time at Derby Grammar School provided a well-balanced and well-rounded education. It wasn’t simply about a set of grades and academic achievements, the wider social, sporting and philanthropic elements meant that I was already prepared for university. These were skills that continued to help me as I moved from education into working life.
Favourite memory: all favourite memories involved extra-curricular activities. The chance to play competitive rugby and cricket, and activities such as Duke of Edinburgh and Young Enterprise were all fantastic distractions from the classroom.”
