Future First - Sign Up Now

If you’re a former student of Chaucer School, we want to hear from you!

Your experiences since leaving could help to motivate and inspire our current students to feel more confident in making decisions about their future. We’d love you to join our alumni network and stay connected with the school.

To further develop our existing alumni, we‘ve partnered with the national education charity Future First, who specialise in helping schools like ours to stay connected with their former students.   It’s our hope that through this partnership we can better promote the work being done by alumni members and also widen the membership to reach more of our former students.  You can choose how and when you help – perhaps you can act as a career and education role model, provide work experience, become a mentor in person or online, or help with donations, fundraising or even apply to become a governor.   Maybe you just want to reconnect with people you went to school with, joining up is a great way to get started.

It doesn’t matter when you left us, 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

In order to sign up, just follow this link and fill in the online form – we promise it will only take a couple of minutes. https://networks.futurefirst.org.uk/register/chaucer/type
