Future First

Chew Valley School seeks former students!

We are seeking former students who can inspire the current generation to academic success and career confidence.

Chew Valley School is one of 400 schools across Britain working with the education charity Future First to harness the experience of alumni to support current students through 'old school tie' networks.

We want to contact former students in established careers and recent leavers in further education, alumni who live nearby and those who have moved away.

Future First's vision is that every school 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.

Gareth Beynon, Headteacher, commented - 'A network of past pupils with all their valuable experience will be vital in helping us to broaden current pupils' job horizons and equip them for the world of work'.

Christine Gilbert, Executive Chair of Future First and a former Ofsted Chief Inspector, said: 'Every state school student should have the opportunity to succeed in life after school, regardless of their background.  If students see 'people like me' have succeeded, they are more likely to believe they can too. They work harder and have higher expectations of success.  We want more schools to see the benefits of using their alumni as a powerful resource'.
