A secondary school in Wembley is calling on all former students to get back in contact, with the help of an education charity.

Preston Manor Secondary School, in Carlton Avenue East, aims to reconnect with former students in a bid to build an extensive alumni network that helps to support current pupils.

The school is one of more than 450 state schools nationally which have registered with the charity Future First –which aims to install an active network of former students in state schools to provide opportunities to those still in secondary education.

Daniel Graham, deputy headteacher, said: “Many former students, especially those who still live locally, are keen to come in and speak to students, sharing their life and work experiences.”

Former students can get in touch with the school by contacting d.graham@preston-manor.com

Sign up to Future First’s alumni scheme can be done by visiting www.futurefirst.org.uk or www.preston-manor.com“Several have been able to offer work experience placements and others have also volunteered to mentor or e-mentor students.

“In a very short space of time, the Alumni Association is already proving to be a very positive force, one which can enhance social mobility.”
