Former King Edward VII School (KES) pupils will be travelling from as far as Australia and Canada to a school reunion which is being held next month.

The event, which will be held in the main hall of KES, has been arranged by Don Oliver and Andrew Stephen who are from the Old Lennensians Association.

Mr Stephen, a former KES pupil from 1964 to 1971 said: 'Anybody who went to KES or the West Norfolk High School can come. Around 200 people and their partners are coming from as far as Australia, Canada, Korea, Germany and France.

'It has got round by word of mouth really, emails and newsletters from the Old Lennensians Association.'

After leaving KES, which back then was an all-boys state grammar school until 1979, Mr Stephen trained as a teacher and moved to Nottinghamshire.

He then joined the Old Lennensians (OLs) Association, which is made up of former grammar school pupils, in June last year.

Mr Stephen said: 'I feel very lucky to belong to the OLs and I hope that the High School will soon have an association of their own. It would be great to work together and hold more events involving partners and perhaps move away slightly from a purely traditional way of doing things. For many people nostalgia guarantees that things wont change.'
