Appreciation: Dr David N Shackleton

Ashville College announces with great sadness the death of Dr David N Shackleton,  he passed away on Sunday 22nd November 2015 after a short stay in hospital. David was an Ashville pupil from 1945 – 1956  and worked tirelessly on behalf of the Ashvillian Society.

We extend our deep sympathy to his beloved and devoted wife Carol.


A fuller tribute to David will appear in due course.

Information Update

We are attempting to improve our current database of information on old Ashvillians in the hope that we can put it to better use in future to help both past and present students.

It would be really useful if you could fill in this quick online form with your current details (even if you think we have them).

Many thanks.


If you have a story, feature, letter or photograph you would like to submit to the website or the Update, please email Tom.

And thank you for your contributions without which the Update would not exist!
