The creation of an Alumni Association for our school has long been overdue. From time to time, former students have said to me that they would greatly welcome the creation of such a network.

In the electronic world of social networking it made good sense to start building our Alumni on-line and I am very grateful to one of our former students, Cobain Schofield (Class of 2013), who has applied his self-taught website creation skills to this.

Our Alumni Association will work if you, as former students want it to work. As an organisation it needs to be ‘demand-led’ while at the same time being supported and facilitated by school staff. Please help to promote your network by forwarding, ‘liking’, tweeting, linked-in connecting etc. etc.

A useful starting point is what name do you want for your Alumni? ‘Alumni Association’ feels a bit impersonal. Anyone with any thoughts on this, please get in touch via our contact page or by emailing:

Finally, the world of web-based communication is great, but it is no substitute for personal contact. I am always delighted to see former students so if you are in the area and want to touch-base with your old school you will always be very welcome. There is a lot of superb talent amongst you which can be of great value to our current students so from time to time we may well make requests for support.

Very best wishes for your continued success and happiness,

Kind Regards,

Simon Ascroft
