The OEs have a varied events calendar with something to suit OEs of all ages. In addition OEs often arrange individual reunions, which the Development Office can help to organise.
OE Dinners are held at prestigious London venues each January. Recent years have seen some fabulous evenings at Home House, the Harwood Arms, the Houses of Parliament, the Carlton Club the In & Out Club and most recently at L'Escargot Restaurant in Soho. We are always interested to hear from OEs with connections or suggestions for future London venues.
We also hold regional dinners and lunchtime events in Bath, including the annual Summer Reunion for leavers from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, and biennially at one of the Oxford colleges.
2013 saw over 100 OEs get together over a weekend to celebrate 90 years of KES Rugby in true KES style. Regular features also include the annual Jonathan Darcy Memorial Cricket Tournament held each Summer at Bathampton and the annual Walking Weekend held in a wild and rugged location each Autumn…
OEs are warmly welcomed to attend events at KES. Many OEs enjoy the Orchestral Gala Concert held in Bath each March, the inspiring Art Evening and Exhibition, the thought-provoking Wroughton Lecture as well as the annual Carol Concert and Founder’s Day Service. OEs can also arrange visits to the School, but we particularly recommend visiting on Open Day in the Autumn Term; come and meet staff and committee members, followed by a tour of the School.
