Future First

Ashlyns School is delighted to announce the formalisation of our alumni network in partnership with the Future First scheme.  If you were once a student at Ashlyns, we want you to get in touch!

Mr Shapland, Head Teacher, said: “We are delighted to have signed up for Future First’s scheme: there is nothing more powerful than former students sharing their inspiring stories with students still at school.”

How to Join the Network

You can sign up to Ashlyns’ Alumni scheme by visiting the Future First registration page by clicking here.

Alternatively, you can contact David Ritchie, Careers Coordinator by emailing

Giving Something Back

We have invited former students to speak at school events from a range of sectors which we are hoping to build on through the Future First scheme. People who have visited the school recently include sportsmen and women, an award winning author, business professionals, successful entrepreneurs, scientists and engineers. They were all able to inspire our students in the knowledge that anything is possible if they are prepared to work hard and believe in themselves.

Helping Others

We are confident that there are many more former Ashlyns students who would be prepared to help the current members of their old school either by speaking at assemblies, meeting with students who are interested in their particular job, offering work experience, mentoring a student who needs career guidance or to support a department. You can have a dramatic impact upon how our students see the world and their place within it. We want them all to have a dream, an ambition that is tough and challenging but one that they can achieve with hard work and determination.
