||Welcome to the page of The Faversham Elizabethans, the association for former pupils of Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Faversham, and of its predecessors, Faversham Grammar School, the William Gibbs School for Girls and the Henry Wreight School. The association runs social and sporting activities for former pupils and helps Queen Elizabeth's through fundraising events and practical assistance.
Members throughout the UK, as well as in Canada, Australia and Germany, are kept in touch with each other and Queen Elizabeth's through the association.
Faversham Elizabethans was formed at the time of the 1967 amalgamation of Faversham Grammar School and the Gibbs School to form the present Queen Elizabeth's. The association combined the Grammar School old boys' association, formed in 1927, and the Gibbs School old girls' association, which began in the 1930s.
If you attended Queen Elizabeth's or one of its predecessor schools, please join Faversham Elizabethans and help us to help the Queen Elizabeth's of today.
Drop a line to Mrs Yvonne Wills, Honorary Secretary, at 17 Plantation Road, Faversham, Kent ME13 8QY, saying which school you attended, and when.
In addition, the Elizabethans' badminton section meets every Thursday evening, and it is hoped to form a golf section.
The 2018 Annual General Meeting of Faversham Elizabethans is to be on Thursday 19 April at 7.30pm in Room A1 at Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Abbey Place, Faversham.
To mark the 50th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, an exhibition will be held in May 2018 at the Faversham Society's Fleur Gallery, in Preston Street, from Friday 18 May to Monday 28 May. The gallery is open Monday, 10am to 4pm; Tuesday, 1pm to 4pm; Wednesday, 10am to 4pm; Thursday, 1pm to 4pm; Friday, 10am to 4pm; Saturday, 10am to 4pm; and Sunday, 10am to 1pm.
This will come 50 years after the official opening of the School by Princess Alexandra in May 1968.
The anniversary has also been celebrated with a very well attended school reunion at QEGS in November 2017.
Former QE pupils can let everyone know where they are now and what they are up to these days by writing to our Secretary, and we'll post the entries on this page. Please send your contributions to:-
