The History of Qualicum College Heights

Robert Ivan Knight was a well-educated, cultured gentleman with a dream of providing a "proper English education" to the boys of Vancouver Island when he cleared the landscape, framed the walls, and built the iconic Qualicum College Boys School in 1935. The Schoolmaster soon endeared himself to the community of Qualicum Beach and became not only a pillar, but an influence. The formal Tudor walls of the College and the eloquent beauty of an English garden were soon reflected in the quaint redesign of the town of Qualicum Beach, home to the College.

Boys filled the halls of Qualicum College Boys School and were treated to the rigors of Latin, Maths, and the Sciences. Traditional pastimes included cricket, sailing, and gymnastics. A standard of excellence was the founding value upon which the School was built, education was the cornerstone of success, and the character of hundreds of young men was forged.

In 1970, Mr. Knight found it was time to complete his scholastic mission and closed the school. An unwavering dream for most of his life, the Schoolmaster took solace in the renewal of the charming Tudor building as it found new purpose as the Qualicum College Inn, and later the Qualicum Heritage Inn. In 2006, PR Pomeroy Restoration and Construction happily took ownership of the heritage site. Motivated by the fabled appeal of the Old School, PR Pomeroy Restoration and Construction felt inspired to restore the building to its former grace. Last year, past students gathered in Qualicum Beach to visit their former School, reunite with boyhood friends to share a story about the good ole days, and to rejoice at the prospect of Qualicum College reaching new Heights.
