Wayland Academy Norfolk (formerly Wayland Community High School) is calling on former pupils to join a new alumni group and help today’s students achieve their career aspirations.
The new alumni group is linked to a wider campaign from the academy – ‘Inspire Wayland’ – which aims to inspire the success of current and future generations of students at Wayland Academy Norfolk.
The academy plans to highlight and celebrate the success of its former students, showing today’s young people what can be achieved and the routes taken to enter the wide range of careers that their predecessors have progressed on to.
Wayland Academy Norfolk will be inviting alumni to speak to current pupils face-to-face, as well as sharing their stories on its website and NewsLink magazine for students and parents. There will also be opportunities for alumni to play a role in mentoring and supporting students.
Glen Allott, principal, Wayland Academy Norfolk, said:
“Creating high aspirations for students has always been central to our ethos at Wayland Academy Norfolk. To realise these ambitions students need to be supported to achieve and offered clear pathways that can take them to their chosen futures.
“Increasing the involvement of our alumni in this process will be very inspiring for students, whilst giving them access to practical advice, support and links with different careers they may wish to get in to. I hope that lots of former students will come forward and help support and encourage the success of the current generation.”
