Newcastle Academy is seeking former students who can inspire the current generation to academic success and career confidence. We would like to contact former students in established careers and recent leavers in further education, old students who live nearby and those who have moved away, to build a vibrant alumni community.
We are one of 400 state secondaries and colleges across Britain working with the education charity Future First to harness the talents and experience of alumni to support current students through ‘old school tie’ networks. 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 180,000 former students nationwide have already signed up to stay connected with their old school. They’re motivating young people as career and education role models, mentors, work experience providers, governors and fundraisers.
Newcastle Academy believe Future First’s support will help us develop a network of past pupils with valuable experience which can play a vital role in helping us to broaden current pupils’ jobs horizons and equip them for the world of work.
Former students register with Future First by clicking the link on the website http://www.futurefirst.org.uk/ and following the link ‘For Former Students’. When you type in the school name please use NEWCASTLE ACADEMY (even if you attended NCHS The Science College, Newcastle Community High School, Sneyd High School, or The Edward Orme).
