Numbers add up to kick off Ashville College’s 140th anniversary celebration

700 pupils, a drone and clear blue skies, helped a school begin a series of events to mark the 140th anniversary of its opening.

Students from Ashville College’s Prep School, Senior School and Sixth Form were the stars of an aerial photograph that saw them forming the number 140, with the iconic clock tower as the backdrop.



Current pupils are being asked to design a 140th Anniversary tie for Old Ashvillians to wear at receptions, lunches and dinners, and for former pupils to share their memories and photos on social media.

Other activities over the coming months include a dinner for former pupils and staff in London, a drinks reunion and the publishing of a specially commissioned book featuring “140 Ashvillians”.
