Calling All Former Students!
We were very proud to have you as students at St Laurence School, teaching you as you grew from new Year 7s to young adulthood.
We would like to continue to be a part of your journey and invite you to share your story with us by becoming a member of the newly launched St Laurence Alumni Community.
What does it involve?
Whatever you did when you left St Laurence, and whatever you do now, you have valuable knowledge and experience to share with our students, helping them to move into the post St Laurence phase of their lives. You can do this by attending our Careers Events and giving our students insights into:
What your progression route was from school
What do you do now and how did you get there?
What worked well? What didn’t work so well?
What do you wish you had done differently?
What words of advice or wisdom do you wish you had been given? Or were given but chose not to follow?
What advice would you give to students for getting the best out of their school years?
There is no “commitment” as such – we will ask for your help and hope that you are free to come along. If it’s not convenient at that time we will invite you to the next event.
Or perhaps you can:
write an inspirational article for the Careers page on our website
contribute to our Alumni page as it develops
offer work experience opportunities to students
We want the Alumni to be all about you! We are in the early stages of re-launching it and welcome suggestions of anything you think should be included.
We are starting off by sending you our termly in-house magazine, Connect. This includes interviews with staff and students (past and present), academic and sporting achievements, fundraising news and lots more. With your help, we want to produce an Alumni newsletter and would love to put on a Reunion Event in 2023.
Let’s get started!
Our Alumni page is very basic at the moment but it does have a link for you to sign up to the Alumni – and it will only a minute or two to complete:
We need you to sign up and start sending your news in to us. We need you to tell us if you can help in any way. We need you to be proud to be a St Laurence Alumni.
Contact the Alumni Team to share your stories: email@example.com
‘The impact of meeting and speaking with an ex-student is immeasurable for some students. Knowing that they had the same start, the same support, the same surroundings and have achieved in the world, in whatever way it may be, is awe inspiring for current students. There is something very special about hearing how one thing led to another in their journey and whatever you are doing now, there will be someone like you here at St Laurence’
Tim Farrer, Headteacher
We are really looking forward to hearing from you!
