The club would like to congratulate Tina Alexander (nee Kent) who was presented with the award of Member of the British Empire (MBE) by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal in October. Tina was recognised for services to British Nationals following Hurricane Maria. Tina attended Abbotsholme from 1973 to 1978.
The Old Abbotsholmians’ Club is delighted to announce that Chris Hall has been appointed as the club’s new President. His appointment begins immediately and will run for two years.
Chris is passionate about the club, Abbotsholme and its ideals. He attended school between 1971 and 1977 and continues to live and work locally with his wife, Doreen. His son, Toby, is currently Head of School at Abbotsholme.
It is with sadness that we pass on news of the death of Ian Small. The Headmaster of Bootham School in York for many years, Ian was a former Head of English and Drama at Abbotsholme, Housemaster of Millholme and an Abbotsholme Governor.
Ian died peacefully on 29th October, after a brief and courageous fight against cancer. He is survived by his three daughters, Catherine, Naomi and Hannah.
