"I know from personal experience how transformative an independent education can be" Dr Brookes, Head

 "As someone who was only able to attend a school very similar to QEGS because I was awarded a 100% bursary, I know from personal experience how transformative an independent education like ours can be-it opened many doors and changed my life.  QEGS has been transforming the lives of bright local boys since 1591 and an investment in bursaries now will enable us to remain true to over 400 years of tradition".
Dr Richard Brookes, Head

Giving Back- Support the QEGS Bursary Fund


"It is remarkable how many QEGS alumni express a deep desire to give back to school, by giving others the opportunity to excel. Like many of my generation, we were very fortunate to be given an outstanding education from 4 to 22 years old that cost next to nothing.  Access to an outstanding education, regardless of background, has been the key to my success and that is why I have left a gift in my will to School as well as supporting the QEGS Bursary Fund and Clayton Campus campaign during my lifetime".
