Ashleigh School - Did you go there?

Recommended Posts

Anyone there from 1972 to 1977 or 1979? Anyone remember the sixth form disco's at Tiffany's Treetops? The first one I went to was probably the worst alcohol (and cigarette and cigar) fuelled, throwing up session I've ever had. Happy days!

Hi Reg 1,

Sorry but do not recall the name. I left at the age of 17 in July 1970.

South Lanarkshire is a good place to live; we frequently visit friends in Abington and always enjoy the countryside and a warm welcome.

Regards

Joe.

Re; Lewis Jepson. Posting this here as although I did'nt attend Ashleigh,I know that Lewis did. I recently discovered that Lewis passed away a little while ago, we were good friends in the 70s/80s until he moved to the Isle of Wight and we lost touch. It does'nt seem five minutes since we were getting our first motors and hurtling out to places like Fiveways, The Fleur de Lys, Marquis of Granby etc, happy days. Hope there are people on here that will remember him. RIP mate.

Just come across the previous posts. I was there from 75 to 79 and 6th form from 79 to 81. I was in the school football team and our keeper was dave Jepson. Any relation to the lad above ? I also went to Tiffanys though that was in 79 went we had just finished the 5th year. Couldn't even shave by then so god knows how we got served. Mrs Read took us !

He was a good kid Dave. We were friends from Bankwood days as well. Not heard anything of him since we left.

I don't recall Lewis having a brother called Dave, if memory serves me correctly he did have a brother called Gary I think.

Hi, just seen this forum and was sad to hear that Lewis Jepson had passed away. When we were at Gleadless Infant School we were always partnered together for the country dance classes. When I bought my first car, I used to fill it up at his mum's petrol station at Gleadless Town End.

I (Jeremy) was at Ashleigh between 1972 - 1979. I remember Ron Underdown as my English Teacher ! My brother Mark Allison also went there (3 years older than me). Anyone else from my classes remember ?

Hi Jeremy, I remember you - I was at Ashleigh from 1977 to 1983. I seem to recall that you were quite involved with the Astronomical Society? I remember Ron Underdown too, he taught me during my years in the Sixth Form.

Yes ! I still have a telescope at home, but work in computing now (Google). I tried to do Astronomy for work, but it was too boring :-).

Hi i'm Mr Tingle, I was the head at ashleigh for 18 years, any one remember me?

 

Tingle? Are you he with whom I shared many a lunchtime discourse at the prefects table in the entrance hall of Central Technical School after it moved to Gleadless? If you are we would have been in the Upper Sixth to as late as 1968 and Chemistry would have been your especial subject.

Today a number of colleagues of MR PETER LEE joined his family and friends at his funeral to celebrate the life and career of this wonderful man.

 

The highlight was the eulogy spoken by his dear friend, Ron Underdown. As Ron so aptly quoted from Thomas Hardy's "The Woodlanders" -

 

"He was a good man, and he did good things."

 

RIP Pete, an Owl and a Gentleman.
