Did you go to Castell Alun High School?
If you’re a former student who would like to support current students, the school would love to hear from you!
Right now, there are students in the assembly hall where you once sat, facing similar challenges and opportunities that you did. Being connected to you could really help them. The school in Hope is one of more than 450 state schools across Britain which have registered with the charity Future First to set up networks of former students or alumni.
Future First’s vision is that every state school or college should be supported by a thriving, engaged alumni community that helps it to do more for its students.More than 50,000 former students across Britain have already signed up to stay connected with their old school. They’re inspiring young people in a number of ways; as career and education role models, mentors or e-mentors, work experience providers, governors, donors or fundraisers.
It doesn’t matter when you left school, whether you’re in further education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, there are still ways you can help!
Mr. Graham Hughes the Headteacher at Castell Alun said, “We signed up to Future First’s scheme straightaway. A network of past students with all their valuable experience will be vital in helping us to broaden current students’ horizons and equip them for the world of work.”
David Goodchild, who manages the Future First programme at the school is waiting to hear from you. Former students can sign up to Future First’s alumni scheme by clicking on the “Former Students” link on the website www.futurefirst.org.uk
