Old Edwardians

Distinguished OEs

Since its foundation in 1883, KEHS has nurtured the intellects of thousands of brilliant and successful women. In 1964, the BGOEC chose to celebrate the most notable old girls by producing a series of leaflets about Distinguished Old Edwardians. These were funded by a legacy from Margaret Pugh, who was one of the first pupils to join KEHS in 1883 and to whom we owe the Old Edwardians' room.

We will now be reviving this tradition, sharing the stories of Old Eds included in the original series. We will also be celebrating the achievements of the many Distinguished Old Eds that have passed through KEHS since that series was made.

New Distinguished Old Eds will be added regularly. If anyone is interested in contributing to this section or would like to nominate an Old Ed, please email us at
