Justice League and Die Hard star Jeremy Irons heads to Isle of Wight for school reunion

By Imogen Tew

STAR of Die Hard with a Vengeance, Justice League and Batman vs Superman, actor and Island born Jeremy Irons met with old school friends at the first ever reunion for former pupils from Little Appley Prep School.

One of the Island’s three Oscar winners and originally from Cowes, Mr Irons attended the event with his dog, Smudge, at the old school site, now Appley Manor Hotel, where 54 ex-students spent the afternoon reminiscing over old photographs and memorabilia.

Among the gathering was also Anthony Mitcheson, whose father was joint headmaster at the school, Robert Eldridge, son of Jim Eldridge at Eldridge Solicitors, and Colin Boswell who owns The Garlic Farm.

Attendees said it was fitting the reunion it was held at the old school site and agreed to another gathering in a couple of years time.
