Kingston College Old Boys Association UK and Europe

Kingston College (Jamaica) Old Boys’ Association UK and Europe (hereafter referred to as KCOBAUK-Europe) is intended to represent the charitable, philanthropic, humanitarian and support initiatives of a collective of former pupils of Kingston College, the premier all boys secondary school in Jamaica and by most barometers, the English-Speaking Caribbean.

Kingston College was founded in April 1925 by the Anglican Diocese of Jamaica with the sole purpose of providing a solid educational platform for the most materially disadvantaged boys from Kingston and surrounding parishes (St Andrew, St Thomas and St Catherine.) The vison of Reverends Gibson, DeCarteret, Hardie and Nuttall was to develop a culture whereby a firm moral grounding would facilitate a culture of fellowship and industry that would be driven and dictated by the anthemic motto which has become stem-winding, invigorating and life-defining ever since: ‘Fortis Cadere Cedere, Non Potest’ – The Brave May Fall, But Never Yield’.  

Notable Alumni

For the past 95 years, Kingston College has allowed tens of thousands of Jamaican boys to access the world by exposing us to learning which offers breadth and depth. Boys have become men; men have become leaders but, like Kipling urged, the ability to “talk to crowds and keep your virtue” or even to “walk with kings, (without) losing the common touch” are essential ingredients in the shaping of the young man for whom “the Earth is yours (his), and everything that’s in it.” KCOBA UK & Europe, will assiduously pursue charitable endeavours that improve lives; in the United Kingdom, Jamaica and across the world.
