The day started with a proper School lunch in the School Dining Hall complete with School pudding! The group then visited the Foundation Offices to hear a talk by Foundation Archivist, Alison Wheatley, and to see some of the KES archive material, including the original architect drawings of the New Street School by Charles Barry. The group were then led on a tour of the School by Derek Benson and Phil Lambie, two previous KES teachers. The tour included a visit to the science labs, library and, of course, Big School. There was also a chance for a quick group photo before it started to rain. Finally the old boys arrived in the Chief Master's study for some well earned tea and cakes. After a short speech by John Claughton they dispersed back up the drive full of renewed friendships and memories.

John Claughton (Chief Master and OE, 1975), Sue Dickens (OEA Administrator), Simon Lerwill (Development Director), Alison Wheatley (Archivist), Derek Benson (Former teacher and OE, 1953) and Phil Lambie (Former teacher) also attended.
