Queen's College Foundation was established to support Queen’s College by raising funds for particular projects and for bursaries to help those pupils who would otherwise be unable to make the most of their talents.
We rely on the financial support of the whole community – Old Queenians, parents and grandparents of current and former pupils, members of staff, Governors and friends of the School. Indeed, we recognise the contribution that men and women from all walks of life with different links to the School can make.
Since the School was founded in 1843, it has been generously supported by many individuals and organisations. Our challenge is to maintain such support so that future generations can benefit from the first-class education that the School continues to offer.
The need for continued investment is crucial for Queen’s College’s long-term success and future. Unfortunately, Queen’s does not have large endowments and whilst we continue to fund much of our development from our own resources, school fees alone do not generate enough surplus to enable us to improve the School's fabric and facilities or support individual pupils with bursaries as much as we would like.
The need to fundraise is therefore as important as ever; consequently we seek support from our wider community of OQs, parents and other friends by ways of donations, gifts and legacies. Projects we have supported in the past include floodlights for the new Astroturf, support for the Learning Development department, IT development and sports tours.
There are many different ways to support Queen’s College – please contact the Development Office if you have any enquiries. We accept both single, and regular donations, by cheque and standing order.
The Sibly Society
The Sibly Society is an organisation of members who either bequest a legacy to the School or make a donation of £1,000 or more to Queen’s College. Members of The Sibly Society are invited to select events such as the carol service, Speech Day and an annual lunch with the Head Teacher.
To become a Patron of Queen's College you can make a donation of £10,000 or more. If you have made a number of smaller donations over time these will be accumulated and recognised. On reaching £10,000 your name will be added to the Patron's Board in the main entrance hall of the School.
