Welcome to our 'new' website
The original QE(K)A website was developed using an excellent, but now obsolete, web development tool. To ensure the longevity of the website we are redeveloping the website in WordPress. As there is quite a lot of content in the original website it's going to take a long time to recreate every page in WordPress. Thus we are starting with this Home page and the other top-level menu pages. These have some content and then link to the original site for the remaining content.
This is a work in progress. New items we have for the website, such as the report on the 2020 AGM, will appear here and not on the original site.
Where a link takes you to the old website you will get a warning that you are going to an insecure website. This is nothing to worry about and it's OK to proceed to the old site.
We’ve made some changes to this home page. In reality the information on this website does not change that much, so we have redesigned this page to make it easier for you to find all the content we have.

We have revised the Constitution to bring it up-to-date and updated the page with minutes of Committee meetings and AGMs and associated documents, plus copies of the Accounts.
The latest memorabilia, introduced at this year’s Annual Reunion, are cufflinks and a tie pin. The pins cost £4.00 and the cufflinks £8.00 and can be ordered from Paul Ogden, the QE(K)A Chair via the webmaster
We have in stock (March 2021) mugs, cufflinks and tie pins. Unfortunately the shield and scarves are just too expensive to get made without a substantial order. If you want to order a mug, tie pin or cufflinks contact the webmaster.
Remember those heady days at KCHSS or QEC? A number of year and class reunions have been organized over the years; these are the ones for which we have details.

A select band of people meet a couple of times a year, drink beer (OK, these days it might be a skinny, de-caf latte), and keep the Association running. The main role of the committee is to organize the Annual Reunion. As the Association used to charge a membership fee there is a legal responsibility to properly account for the Association’s funds.
