Broughton is the only House named in honour of an Old Elizabethan.
William Grant Broughton was educated at Queen Elizabeth’s School in the late 18th century and was appointed Archdeacon of New South Wales in 1828, having been noticed and assisted by the Duke of Wellington. He went on to become the first (and only) Anglican Bishop of Australia.
Broughton is the third oldest of the QE Houses and reminds us of the important missions that Old Elizabethans take up, both in this country and abroad, upon leaving the School.
Boys in the House have a keen appreciation for history, having recently won the Year 7&8 history essay competition.
