You can give back to QEH in a number of ways - whether through your time and expertise by mentoring a current pupil or returning to school to give a talk, or financially by donating to the bursary fund, or sponsoring a new building. Read on for more information below, or get in touch with us to discuss how you can help the school.
"dum tempus habemus operemur bonum."
The School Motto
QEH has given substantial financial help towards the education of boys in Bristol since its foundation in 1590, and the school continues to provide a first class education for pupils whose families would otherwise not be able to find the funds to pay for it.
Help us continue John Carr’s philanthropic vision for QEH by donating to the Bursary Fund today. Whether it is by setting-up a standing order, or giving a one-off donation, you can help a pupil receive a QEH education.
And to borrow a phrase, every little counts. Why not start by setting-up a standing order equivalent to the price of a Netflix subscription? ‘Year Group Giving’ is another great option. Who not pool together with QEH friends and fund a bursary together?
To discuss all the ways in which you can help, then please get in touch with us.
In recent years, the school has invested in capital projects such as the construction of the new Brandon Hill Building, and upgrading the sports pitches at Failand.
We are always looking to improve QEH for our pupils, and with your help we can deliver the best facilities.
Whether you can contribute the price of a brick, or you wish to have a building named after you, please get in touch to discuss ways in which you can help.
Are you able to help mentor a pupil? Speak about your career? Offer work experience? Invite a school trip to your workplace?
Financial giving isn’t the only way in which you can give back to QEH. We would love to hear from you if you can offer your time and expertise. It is always inspiring for our pupils to see what our OEs are up to, and they appreciate any help you may be able to give them.
Remember to sign up to our Mentoring platform (by clicking on the Careers page) so our Sixth Formers and other OEs can connect with you.
“I charge you to never forget the great benefits that you have received in this place and in time to come according to your means, to do all that you can to enable others to enjoy the same advantage.”
