Queen Mary’s Club is the alumni organisation for ex-pupils of
Queen Mary’s Grammar School in Walsall.

We run events throughout the year to support the school and to foster community between the alumni. Take a look around, see if you can spot yourself in the alumni galleries and we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.

UPCOMING EVENTS


Wreath Laying 2019

Find us at the West Door of Westminster Abbey at 1pm to join our short service  in the Queen Elizabeth Chapel at 1.15pm on Friday 5th July 2019, when we celebrate the establishment of our School by Queen Mary in 1554.  All Old Marians are welcome, as are spouses and friends. 

Following the ceremony we shall have lunch (venue to be decided) which usually costs about £25 (drinks extra, to be paid for individually on the day) and then there may be a short visit somewhere nearby (also to be decided).  Tickets for lunch and the visit will be available online when confirmed.

If anyone wants to travel to London in the minibus from School, leaving at 8 am, they will need to book a place (no cost) by telephoning Gillian Columbine on 01922720696 or emailing alumni@qmgs.walsall.sch.uk.


Old Marians' Dinner 2019

This year the Old Marians’ Annual Dinner will be held at 7pm for a 7.30pm start on Saturday, 28th September, here at School. The speaker will be Roger Smith QC, a barrister since 1972 with Cornwall Street Chambers in Birmingham.

For the cohort of 1969, it is now 50 years since you left and high time you came back to School!  It really is an enjoyable evening and a lovely opportunity to hear about the School as it is today from the Headmaster, Richard Langton.  We shall indulge in all the traditions, including taking snuff (not compulsory!), and singing the School Song.

Please book your ticket(s) using the PayPal link below:  if you wish to pay by credit card, this link will allow you to do so.
