150 Anniversary

The Leys School is proud to announce a series of exciting events and projects to mark its sesquicentennial in 2025. Highlights include a Service of Thanksgiving at King’s College Chapel, a Gala Dinner, sports and musical events, and reunions for Old Leysians both in Cambridge and overseas. Additionally, a range of commemorative projects will be unveiled, including a promotional film, a dedicated historical publication, and a commissioned piece of music. The celebrations promise to honour our rich history and foster community spirit, culminating in a memorable year for all associated with The Leys.

Please note that all events will need to be booked in advance. Further information, booking details, news and other media will appear on this page as we approach the anniversary year.
