Alumni and Community contacts

We are proud of the strong links we have with our alumni, and of their willingness to return to school to share their career journeys in order to inspire the students of today. We are also proud of the excellent connections we have established with local and national employers, many of whom support our Higher Education and Careers day in July every year.

We are keen that current students continue to benefit as much as possible from contacts within our wider community and as such, we are always looking for ways to develop this side of our programme further still. We would therefore welcome any contact from alumni, parents or employers about ways they can support our students.

In addition to the above, our students benefit from ad hoc talks and one off careers provision as they present throughout the academic year.
