Queen Elizabeth’s School was established in 1573 through the generous giving of patrons, and this strong tradition of philanthropy continues today. The School’s mission is “to produce young men who are confident, able and responsible”: nurturing a commitment to philanthropy is an important aspect of our work to fulfil this mission.

Our new Building on Distinction development plan sets out a bold vision and provides an opportunity for the Elizabethan community, including alumni, to unite in making provision for future generations of pupils. To achieve this, we must maximise the advantages of our campus and location. We have an ambitious estates plan for the next five years, with our primary target being the completion and equipping of our Music School. We need help from the wider Queen Elizabeth’s community to realise this goal.

We offer many ways to contribute to the development of our School; we hope the plans below provide choice and flexibility. However, if you would like to further discuss making a donation, please feel free to contact the Development Office at developmentoffice@qebarnet.co.uk
