The Opening Of The Beaumont Pitch

The Beaumont  1st XV Pitch was officially opened by Paul Staniford (Captain 1st XV 1973-74), at a ceremony attended by the current first team, current and past pupils and a number of former school rugby captains

The pitch was named in honor of John Beaumont, a life long rugby fan, former pupil and Governor. In his opening speech, Paul said: “Thanks to John’s legacy, Ashville College now has a 1st XV pitch it can be proud of, and one that will, thanks to his significant investment, serve the school for many years to come.”

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!
