National Heritage Open Day

Date Posted: 24/09/2013 | Posted In: Latest news

The opening of the College over the National Heritage Weekend was a huge success.

It was decided to open QE up to visitors to link in with the College’s 450th birthday celebrations and the range of people who took advantage of the opportunity was reflective of the role QE plays in the local community. Old boys from QE, when it was a grammar school, enjoyed reminiscing and seeing parts of the College which had been out of bounds to them in the1950s and 1960s; current students and their parents enjoyed exploring both the historical and new parts of the campus; some, with no personal links to the College, enjoyed just finding out more.

Vice Principal, Anita Blackburn, said:

‘It was a fabulous day and it was great to welcome so many visitors to the College. It was very worthwhile and an excellent way to continue our anniversary celebrations.’
