Old Elizabethans are an important aspect of the school. Education is for life and the friends made at school can remain important influences for pupils well beyond their time at Brandon Hill. Often former pupils are active mentors, keen to provide opportunities for current pupils such as career advice and work experience.
Membership of the QEH Old Boys’ Society is a good way for former pupils to keep in touch with their school friends and the activities of the current pupils. Originally founded in 1869, the Society has never lost sight of its original purpose to provide help to members who have fallen on hard times and to assist in providing scholarships, bursaries and donations to provide a first-class education for boys at QEH.
Today the Society flourishes with approaching 2000 members, including over 100 from overseas, and membership is growing. It is managed by an annually elected Executive Committee with reunions organised across the country. The Society organises an Annual Dinner held in Bristol and a newsletter three times a year.
Most current QEH and recent Old Elizabethans are automatically Life members of the Old Boys’ Society as their subscriptions have been paid through their fees whilst at School.
The Society is currently offering Life Membership for all those Old Boys aged over 30 at a cost of £40.00 (usually £90).
Should you be an OE wishing to find out what has happened to your old school friends, contact the Old Boys’ Society or the Development Office at QEH.
