A local school is looking to its ex-pupils to help inspire and advise their current generation of students.
Ash Hill Academy in Hatfield is looking to enlist the help of former pupils who attended either the academy, Hatfield Visual Arts College or Hatfield High School.
The academy are working with national education charity, Future First, to build an alumni network who may be willing to give talks or mentor those currently studying at the school.
A spokesperson for Ash Hill Academy said: “We are working with Future First who are a company who believe having relevant and relatable past students as role models could transform a young person’s confidence, motivation and skills.
“Former students who have grown up in the same community and attended the same school can show our students that ‘people like me’ do succeed.
“We would welcome any former students to return and deliver talks or even mentor our students”.
One former Hatfield High pupil, Jon Whiteley, Deputy Chief Executive at Doncaster Culture & Leisure Trust (DCLT), will be presenting Ash Hill’s former year 11s with their examination certificates on Tuesday 21 November and presenting a short speech on his experiences.
The spokesperson added: “Enrolling doesn’t mean you have to do anything like the above if you don’t want to, just signing up and telling us what you are doing would be great to hear about”.
