History

The college was founded in 1935 to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King United Kingdom.

The buildings were designed by the English architect feddans of land donated by the Governorate of Alexandria. The school site went up to the main Boulevard "Abu Keir Avenue". The Minister of Education donated a big section to the faculty of science, which stands there today.

Aim

It followed the British system of education for a very select group of girls. It was run on the lines of an English public school. Students studied for Oxford and Cambridge examinations, and played British games.

Until 1956 the staff were all British, but they were expelled as a result of the Suez crisis of 1956.[1] One of the best known EGC graduates is Queen Sofía of Spain.[2]
