Welcome to the QEGS Senior School Parents' Association

The Parents Association (PA) aims to put to large cherry onto the QEGS cake.  We do this by bringing parents and boys together for social and fundraising events.  Whatever your sons interests we hope to enrich his time at QEGS by supporting the range of QED activities, extra curricular clubs or any new event the school proposes.

Upcoming Events

Quiz Night - Friday 26 January 2018

Recent Events

New Parents' Cream Tea

Towards the end of the Summer term QEGS invites all the boys who will be starting in September into school to meet their classmates and Form Teachers.

As this can also be an anxious time for parents, when they come to collect their boys everyone can join us for a Cream Tea.

The boys meet Mrs Allen in the cookery rooms after lunch and begin baking.  This year we produced nearly 90 scones, with or without cream and jam.  There is always a little taste testing before we serve them in Reception and as in previous years, the scones were scrumptious.

This event is a wonderful way to, albeit briefly, meet other new boys, parents, staff and members of the Parents Association.

PA Quiz Night 2016

Thank you to everyone who helped to make the latest Quiz Night such a great success.

A full QE Hall was treated to a challenging quiz from our very own Quiz Master Mr Lambert.  The 20 or so teams had their broad general knowledge tested on topics from football to TV theme tunes (the bar staff are still basking in the knowledge we knew ‘Howards Way”)!

It was a lively and noisy evening, peace reigning only when the excellent pie and pea supper was served. 

It was a close finish, with the title being taken this year by The QEGheads.  Congratulations.

Do you think that you can beat them – if so we look forward to seeing you next year!
