Faversham Elizabethans - Association of Former Pupils and Staff

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

There will be a reunion for all former students and staff on SATURDAY 27TH APRIL 2024 starting at 2pm at the school, to celebrate the expansion of the school to six forms of entry.

It will be an opportunity to visit the new sports hall, dining room and theatre and see the new landscaping at the front of the school.

Headteacher, David Anderson will give a short presentation about the school today in the theatre at 3pm. Mr Anderson is retiring at end of August, so this will be an opportunity to wish him well in his retirement.

The last reunion in 2017 was very successful and we would like this one to be even bigger and better. It is a great opportunity to meet up with fellow students and staff to share memories about your time at the school. Light refreshments will be available, to assist with catering please contact Yvonne Wills (nee Martin) at ygloriaw@btinternet.com if you hope to attend.

We have an Annual Lunch in October, which is held in the school dining hall with delicious food cooked by the school catering teaming from Cucina.

Under a gazebo at the school's Summer Fete in July we host a display highlighting aspects of the school's history with a variety of photos, magazines and attendance registers. Both events give former pupils a chance to meet up with others and share their memories.

One of the associations aims is to support the school financially. The Association has made a contribution towards the seating for the Theatre which was officially opened on November 10th 2021 and this is recognised on the benefactors board in the foyer (the featured photo was taken in the theatre of some members attending lunch in 2021). We also contribute to prizes for Senior Prizegiving each year.

Badminton sessions are held on Thursday evenings in the new improved Sports Hall, which all our members are welcome to attend (see photo below taken in Sports Hall October 2023).
