Celebrating our recent leavers!
After having to postpone last year’s event, we were delighted to host our ASA Leavers’ BBQ in September.
2020 leaver Mikel Sulaiman (Merchants, 2020) reported for us on the evening:
“The ASA Leavers’ BBQ was a wonderful event. Leavers from 2017 through to 2021 were able to reconnect with our fellow classmates and former teachers. We chatted about how different everyone looked, what we had been up to and our prospects for the future. Seeing so many familiar faces after having spent a year in London was a truly heart-warming experience and it was enjoyable to share our fond memories of our time spent at Ashford School.
At the BBQ, the Headmaster Michael Hall and Director of Sixth Form Claire Miller, presented the 2020 Leavers who were able to attend with their prizes and leaving gifts. The awards ceremony was a long time coming, as the event was postponed due to the pandemic. Receiving the Biology Prize was a testament to my work at school, and is a nice memento to keep and remember where it all started.
Despite having left Ashford School in 2020 and being exposed to many new experiences, I have fond memories of my time spent here, and I am grateful for attending school again to remind myself how far I have come since. The BBQ was a great break from my busy life in London and before I move into my second year at UCL.”
