If you are a former student of Outwood Academy Adwick, we want to hear from you!
Your experiences since leaving could help to inspire our current students in making decisions about their future. We’d love you to join our alumni network and stay connected with the Academy.
We’ve partnered with the national education charity Future First, who specialise in helping academies like ours to stay connected with their former students.
You can choose how and when you help – perhaps you can act as a career and education role model, provide work experience or become a mentor.
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:
