Aims & Policies


Aims of the society

The QEH Old Boys Society was first formed in 1869, although the Society as we know it today dates from 1899. As at January 2016 our membership total was 1949.

Communication with members is through thrice yearly newsletters, issues in the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms. The Society is managed by an Executive Committee , elected at our AGM, which is held traditionally on the day before our annual dinner. This dinner is the main social event of each Society year, and is held at the School. It is an excellent opportunity for former pupils and their contemporaries to meet in a convivial environment. The Society also encourages members to arrange reunions of year groups – these are held either at the weekend of the AGM and Annual Dinner or, at different times of the year, in other parts of the country. Annual reunions are held in Cambridge, Leeds and London (the latter being a joint venture with the Red Maids’ Society). Our Membership Secretary is always happy, on request, to assist with the names and addresses of individual members, or groups of members by reference to year of entry into the School. We encourage members to leave messages for the Society on this website, or to send emails to Executive Committee members. In these days of electronic communication, former pupils often contact each other via sites such as Facebook or Linked In, and links to such sites (as well as to the school) can be found on our website.

Please remember that it is Your Society and the Executive Committee welcomes contributions from members, whether by way of articles for the newsletter, or for members’ notices or just suggestions.
