Plume Alumni describes anyone who has been connected with the academy either as a student or member of staff. We would strongly encourage you to register as an Alumni and there are many reasons as to why we genuinely feel you should.
The first is that quite simply, you have a story to tell. A story which may inspire and positively encourage our present students to think about following a similar pathway to yours or to just simply start thinking about their future. Also, you may have an expertise to share or skills to pass on, or you may wish to establish connections, get involved with the academy again and somehow “give back” primarily to benefit those who now learn in the same environment you once did.
We have welcomed back ex-students to talk to individuals and small groups, to help deliver workshops, to offer advice with option choices, to visit after-school sports clubs and deliver assemblies.
Perhaps it has been years since you left school? You may be at a different stage in your life? You may be living in a different part of the country, or possibly even overseas. There are so many reasons why it would be good for you to consider getting back in touch with us?
You may have advice that you can pass on regarding which college, university, apprenticeship or pathway to consider, which in turn could help our current students to expedite their current thoughts about this.
A growing number of our Alumni are also helping current students with work experience and work shadowing opportunities. They attend careers events and are keen to promote their chosen industry/business sector and their company. Others act as mentors and many of those further afield are happy to allow us to make reference to their onward journey from Plume Academy and their subsequent achievements. Some are even happy to send a photo for our gallery!
How Can I Get Involved?
Very easily! Simply register and you will be able to let us know the level of involvement you are happy with, from just receiving news updates to being actively involved in the educational pathways of our current students.
We would encourage those of you who have well established social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.) to forward on the link here so as to include as many of our Plume Family as possible:
