Ashleigh School - Did you go there?

Recommended Posts

Pleased to hear that! On the English Department side I also remember Mr Underdown & Mr Barlow. Before you took over, our English teacher was Mrs King - she got no trouble at all from the lads due to her obvious assets (& I'm not talking about her 1954 split-screen Morris Minor in metallic crimson!)

 

My other teachers through the years at Ashleigh were Mr Surr, Mrs Livesey, Mr Crisp, Mr Potts, Mr Morgan, Mr Hughes, Mr Slack, Mr Pearson, Mr Jackson, Mr Westnidge (who thought that he was still in the army), Mrs "Two Demerits!!" Liddle, Mr Lee, Mr Taylor, Mr Holden, Mrs Gears, Mr Donald & Mr White.

 

Update...

 

Ron Underdown - still going strong in his 80s, although the only time I see him is at funerals.

Pete Barlow (I was best man at his wedding)...went to teach at Myers in 1986...May have retired now.

Brian Surr's enjoying retirement - lives near Morrison's at Mosboro'.

Pottsy retired a while ago and is enjoying his golf and cycling.

Steve Holden ended up at Sheffield Hallam, via Tapton, before retiring, and travels the globe now.

Graham Taylor is also retired, and is as fit as a butcher's dog.

 

Were you in the same year as Stan the Fireman (Darren Staniland)? Occasionally, we saddoes meet up at the Phoenix, and Darren has joined us a couple of times.

 

Tell you what ...our next meeting is on Thursday, 3rd December...you could sneak in and pike incognito, and see who has aged most disgracefully!

Thanks for that - don't remember Darren Staniland? Phoenix on Thursday 3rd December would be good, I go in there from time to time & it's just an easy 30 minute walk for me so hopefully I could meet you all then? What sort of time do you meet up? Cheers!

8.30 - 9.00 is the usual time. You'd be very welcome.

 

Hi' us a clue, though...what's your first name, and the initial letter of your surname?

Andrew S.

Sat at the front with Alan Drabble & Paul Machen.

 

P.S. I recall now that we did The Merchant of Venice for "O" level & I was given Shylock's part to read in class. Romeo & Juliet was our "AO" level Shakespeare play for the year after, with Pete Barlow.

Yes, I do remember you Andrew. Alan - did he and/or his dad have a driving school? Shylock, eh? Hoffman, Pacino, Sher and Speight, so you're in good company there.

 

Hope to see you on the 3rd Andrew.

I started at Central Tech. in 1966 and finished at Ashleigh in 1970. All the posts that I have read here are regarding later years. Is there anyone reading this who also attended in those first years of co-ed?
