The sculpture is Bowtell’s My Children. The plinth is by Kindersley.

The boy, wearing the school’s traditional uniform of jacket and breaches, is leap-frogging over a bollard which is cast from an original 1819 Hans Town bollard. Hans Town was developed by Henry Holland about 1780 - 1800 and covered the area either side of Sloane Street between Knightsbridge and Cadogan Place.
