School Prepares for 450th Anniversary Celebrations
13 Apr 2018
Celebrations to mark Ashby School’s 450th anniversary will culminate in July with a gala garden party for students, staff and the local community.
Special anniversary tours of the school will also be offered to former students, as part of a weekend of commemorations.
The garden party will be held on the evening of Friday 6 July and will feature musical performances by current and returning students. Visitors will be invited to bring a picnic to enjoy on the scenic Boarding House lawn.
Tickets will be available to students, staff, parents and governors, both past and present, as well as friends of the school and members of the local community.
Anniversary tours will take place on Saturday 7 July. Former students will be able to book a place on one of several tours throughout the day.
Teacher Donna Tolley, who is involved in the anniversary celebrations, said: “We want anyone who has fond associations with Ashby School to join us for this very special occasion in the school’s history.
“Ashby School has changed immeasurably since 1567 but what has remained the same is its excellent reputation and the enormous affection people feel for it.”
Tickets will go on sale later this term. For more information, email Donna Tolley at email@example.com
