Before they head back for the autumn term at university or college, all young Ashfordians are invited to a bbq to celebrate their time at Ashford School and to socialise with friends and (former) teachers and to pass on your advice to our newest leavers as they head off to enjoy university, gap year or other exciting opportunity.
The bbq will take placed on the Edwards Lawn immediately to the left of the main School entrance. Last year's event was a roaring success and it would be great to have even more of you come along this year.
Put the date in your diaries and we'll take care of the arrangements. We look forward to seeing you there and hearing your news.
All Ashfordians are invited to join us for the annual President's Luncheon at the Keeper's House in the Royal Academy on Piccadilly. Last year's event was great fun, with superb food and wine and great company, with Ashfordians from many school generations joining Carolyn Chamberlain, ASA President for one of the highlights of the year.
Invitations and online booking will go out shortly.
ASA Summer Luncheon - 2 July, 2017
We were greeted with beautiful blue skies for our Summer Lunch, held in the marquee on Somerville Lawn and some 40 former staff and pupils joined us to celebrate our shared experience of Ashford School and its community. Great food, great company and lots of laughter. Especial thanks to our catering team, to the Year 11 and 12 students who served us and to Matt Nicholls (2016 Knights) who entertained us all over pre-lunch prosecco with some superb piano playing.
After lunch we embarked upon an exhaustive tour of the nooks and crannies of the School and Boarding Houses, with girls searching out their old classrooms and dormitories... so many memories and stories!
Class of 1977 Reunion - 20 May, 2017
Tricia Morris's (Timbers) (1977 Alfred) grand plan for a reunion for girls from her leaving year of 1977 came to fruition on 20 May with a gathering of 18 girls from her year group. We held a hot buffet lunch in Brake Hall followed by a tour around the School. As Tricia has noted in her write-up of the day (to be published in the next ASA School Tie Magazine( "It would seem that it doesn't matter how long you've been apart, the chatter simply continues - and the memories come thick and fast!"
Tricia is already planning ahead for a London-based reunion for the girls when they celebrate their 60 birthdays in a couple of years' time!
