Faversham Elizabethans - Association of Former Pupils and Staff

The Faversham Elizabethans is an association of all former pupils and staff of Queen Elizabeth's school and its predecessors – The Faversham Grammar School for Boys and The William Gibbs School for Girls.

We have an annual lunch in October and feature a display at the school's Summer Fete highlighting aspects of the school's history. This year we had examples of old exam papers from the 1940s and 1960s. In 2020, we hope to display information about the William Gibbs School for Girls and would therefore welcome any old photos, memories or uniform you may have.

At the school fete on Saturday 29th June 2019 the Association was pleased to present a cheque for £1000 to Headteacher, David Anderson, towards the project to update the Sports Hall.

Members are very welcome to attend badminton sessions on Thursday evenings in the Sports Hall.

The Association has also set aside funds to go towards the proposed seating for the Theatre which will be built during the next academic year.

The Faversham Elizabethans support the school with prizes at Senior Prizegiving: including the Bruce Martin House Prize; in memory of Bruce, who was the Elizabethans' Secretary for more than 30 years and devoted many hours assisting with the running of the Association and helping the school. He was a pupil at The Faversham Grammar School from 1941-1947. His wife, son, daughter and two grandsons are all former pupils of the school; and the link continues with his daughter Yvonne Wills (nee Martin) now Secretary of the Faversham Elizabethans.
