King Edward's School Home

London Reception

In September 2017 we are holding events in London and Birmingham, where we will be sharing our refreshed vision for Assisted Places. You are invited to join us as we enter a new era for Assisted Places and seek to build upon the success of the AP100 Campaign for the benefit of future generations of King Edward's boys.

The London Reception will be held at The Serpentine Gallery's new Pavilion in Hyde Park on Monday, 11 September 2017. Each year, the Gallery invites an international architect to design a temporary Pavilion in its grounds. This year's designer is the award-winning African architect Francis Kéré, whose design is inspired by a tree that serves as a central meeting point in his home town of Gando in Burkino Faso. Kéré's Pavilion seeks to connect visitors to nature - and each other.

The evening will begin with a drinks reception at 6pm, which will be followed by speeches, and festivities will conclude at 8.30pm.

We would like to thank Sir Paul Ruddock (1976) for facilitating our exclusive access to the Pavilion.
