I went to Ashleigh 1971 to 1978. I remember Mr. Fyfe wearing a cap and gown. Didn't realise his wife was the deputy head though. I remember Mr. Hill, Mr. Rogers and a rather short lady each wearing a cap and gown. Perhaps that was Mrs. Fyfe.

 

I think that Mr. Hargreaves married Miss Cru; she taught General Science to my class in the first year. We had a biology teacher called Mr. Sirs that married the RE teacher. There was also Dr. Richardson (chemistry), Mr. Pemberton (chemistry), Mr. Williams (maths), Mr. Green (English), Mr. King (French), Mr. Matson (geography),Miss Givens (English), Mrs. Moxon (history), Miss Morris (biology), Mr. Hunter (woodwork).

 

I recall some of the names mentioned by Touche and Debk - Mark Pinson, Martin Smith. I think they were in the year above me. I also remember Ian Guymer, Mary Butler, Martin Leary from that year.

 

From my year I recall Karl Priest, Andy Greaves, Julian Crookes, Nick Fletcher, Andy Briggs, Nigel Williams, David Palin, Jay Dorling, John Worrall, Chris Worrall, Julie Worrall, Jenny Bradbury, Trudy Worth, Beverly King, Karen Lancaster, Karen McGrath, Christine Howell, Caroline Shackleton.

 

I was at Ashleigh School from October 1976 to July 1977 as a French assistant and my name is Pierre Barreau. I might have known you as an upper sixth year student during one of m y French conversation classes. I very clearly remember Mary Butler. Along with a few of her classmates she had sent me a bithday card reading "one day my ship will come and with my luck I wiil be at the airport". My conversation classes included such students as Ruth Janicki (another very bright student of Polish origin and with a very high French standard, just like Mary Butler) Martyn Ifould, Leslie Tailor, Deborah Rollison (sorry but I have lost track of the other upper sixth students' names). As a foreign language assistant I was assisted and inviligated in my work by Jack Lambert and Pamela Senior (respectively German and French teachers). Jack Lambert was head of the modern languages department and he was the man that taught me absolutely everything concerning my job as a university professor. I am not surprised at reading that he was an inspiration to the students he taught. He could sometimes flow into a real temper and he used to speak the standard Broad Yorkshire dialect interspersed with some remarkable 18th century English phrases and style. I will simply never forget him even though he died of liver cancer in 1995.

I had had to go back to France in 1977 but a significant part of my heart and soul has remained in South Yorkshire and stubbornly refuses to settle down to the French spirit and state of mind. I very sincerely hope that you will reply to this note.

Hi Pierre, I was in the lower sixth during your time at Ashleigh. I studied science and maths and did not attend any French conversation classes. Actually I was not very good at modern languages. Nevertheless years later my family and I had several enjoyable holidays in France and so perhaps it would have been helpful if I had attended those French conversation classes. It is good to hear you have fond memories of Sheffield. Regards Jeremy Peatfield

I remember Dave Lindley and Steve Wood sounds familiar. Mark Butler was (I think) better known as Spud or Spudder. He knocked around with Julian Saunders, Richard Firth and Anthony Hinchcliffe.
