Ravensbourne School in Bromley has signed up to the Future First network and is looking for former students to provide motivation and inspiration for current pupils.
Future First is an educational charity that operates nationwide to help schools establish their own alumni networks that can support existing students. So far, nearly 400 of the country’s state schools have joined with their own networks, and more are signing up all the time.
The service has enabled more than 150,000 former students from these schools to register so they can keep in touch and provide inspiration for the current crop of students. This support can be offered in a range of ways, including being educational and career role models, work experience providers, e-mentors, donors, fundraisers or governors.
The charity’s aim is for all of the UK’s state schools and colleges to have one of these networks that can become a community support hub for its students.
As a new member of the Future First scheme, Ravensbourne School on Hayes Lane wants to encourage as many of its former pupils as possible to sign up. These could be students who have only left in the past few years and gone on to further education or those who have an established career, and they are welcome to join whether they still live in the area or have moved somewhere new.
You can find out more about the scheme and sign up on the Future First website.
