The reunion started with some tours of the school, including Big School, the chapel, the old gyms and the library. The drinks reception that followed was a great opportunity for everyone to catch up with old friends and to see some of the archive material. It was also a good chance to chat to some of the former teachers who were there, including former Chief Master, Martin Rogers. After a brief welcome from the Development Director everyone moved through to dinner in the school dining room. The dinner was another good chance for the OEs to catch up with each other and to enjoy the food which included apple pie and custard for pudding! The event ended with a speech from John Claughton, who said that he hoped he could continue to make King Edward's as great in reality as it was in the minds of old boys. It was then time for everyone to head home full of reawakened memories, renewed friendships...and apple pie.
