The day started with tea and coffee in the staff common room and a welcome from the Development Director. This was followed by a school lunch in the School Dining Hall. After a quick group photo (for which everyone managed to successfully get into alphabetical order!) the old boys then visited the Foundation Offices to hear a talk by Foundation Archivist, Alison Wheatley, and to see some of the KES archive material. The group were then led on a tour of the school by Derek Benson and Simon Lerwill. The tour included a visit to some classrooms, the chapel, the library and, of course, Big School. Finally the old boys arrived in the Chief Master's study for some well earned tea and cakes before they dispersed back up the drive full of renewed friendships and memories.
