Centenary celebrations for the King Edward VII School will continue next month with two reunions for former pupils.

Centenary celebrations for the King Edward VII School will continue next month with two reunions for former pupils.

The school in Gaywood Road, King's Lynn, which can trace its history back to the 16th century, is celebrating 100 years on its current site.

A number of centenary events have already taken place including an art competition for pupils which culminated in a summer exhibition of images relating to the school going on show at the Lynn Museum.

Centenary celebration organisers are hoping that the images may have ignited a spark of nostalgia in former pupils and are offering them the chance to return to school and share their memories with former classmates.

Two reunions will be held in November for pupils of the school from 1979 to 1990 and also from 1991 onwards.

The events will include a tour to see the school as it is now, as well as a chance to reminisce with former friends and teachers over a drink and buffet lunch.

The plans follow a successful reunion held by the Old Lennensians Association in July for pupils who attended the school before 1979.

Headmaster Mike Douglass said: "It is fantastic that we have been able to maintain the links between the school and the Old Lennensians Assosciation. Now I hope these next planned reunions will help to revive some happy memories for staff and pupils from more recent times."

The events will be held on November 18, for pupils from 1991 onwards, and November 25, for pupils from 1979 to 1990. Tickets cost £10 and are available from the school on 01553 773606.
