City of London School leavers 1950 - 1959 reunion
The 1950s Leavers Reunion took place in the Exhibition Space and the Asquith and Hale room on Wednesday 14 March. Old Citizens travelled from far and wide to see long lost friends and visit the New School site. Having all been students at the establishment on the Victoria Embankment, they were keen to explore the new building.
The event began with a drinks reception and an exhibition of archives. Old Citizens were entertained to find their faces amongst the wide selection of Sports Club, Year Group and Prefects photographs on display. However, our Archivist Katherine Symonds was not the only person providing interesting pieces for the exhibition. Other items gifted to us included an immaculately kept 1950 blazer and an intricate piece of handrail from the main staircase at Milk Street.
The reception was followed by lunch, where Head Alan Bird stopped by to give a short speech and welcome our guests. Prefects were also on hand to provide guided tours of the school; an offer taken up by most.
Old Citizen Geoffrey Thompson noted, “It was quite an experience to have a conducted tour of the school, which was most impressive and in stark contrast to my days there!”
