This scarf was worn by Joy Mitchell and later by her daughter Clare at Ashleigh School on Gleadless Road.
When the school opened in 1965 it was called the Central Technical School. This was originally on Leopold Street in the city centre, but it had become too small to hold all the pupils. The headmaster and the school name moved to new, purpose-built school on Gleadless Road, and it was later renamed Ashleigh School. In 1988 it merged with Hurlfield School to become Myrtle Springs. It is now an Academy.
