Ashleigh School - Did you go there?

Recommended Posts

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.

I know its a bit late but just read through this forum and found it really interesting how people can remember so much info about their school years, it certainly brought back many memories - some good and some not so good (ha ha).  I left Ashleigh School in 1974 and wondered if anyone out there remembers me  -Debra Parlett?

You didn't live on Seagrave Avenue did you? Was your mother called Pat?

Hi Paul

 

Yes I remember you. We left in 79. Slippy Quarry was Mel Webster. I'm in touch with Chris Shackleton and several others on FaceTube quite regularly.

Hope you're well.

 

Chris
