Ascot in People's Lives
Paula Hamilton: I attended high school here, from approximately 1974 - 1978. Two of my classmates here were Nicholas and Simon Cowell. I dated Simon in 1976, when I was 16, and lost my virginity to him. He was my first love. In 1978, at the age of 17, I decided to try modeling, and posed nude in some racy publications. Serious modeling agencies that I went to all rejected me, but I didn't want to give up. I decided to travel to Tokyo to pursue a modeling career.
Sienna Miller: I attended a privileged boarding school here, around 1991.
