Old Blackburnians are always welcome back at school (by appointment) and are encouraged to remain in contact with each other and with the school through this website and by attending events. These include the annual dinner at school in December, the London dinner, the Oxbridge dinner and business networking events. There is a QEGS group on the networking site Linkedin and an Old Blackburnians Facebook page. Please update your contact details here.

The QEGS community friends of former pupils, parents and staff have been most generous in giving support to today's generation of pupils. If you would like to make a donation or just to find out what the QEGS have been supporting have a look at the development section by following the link on the left.
I look forward to hearing your news and hope to meet some of you at the events in the coming year.
