As a school we pride ourselves on ensuring that when our students leave, they are well rounded individuals ready to work and participate in modern Britain.
When our students arrive in Year 7 we instil into them the importance of playing an active part and belonging to our school family. This sense of belonging to our school family does not end once students have completed their GSCE exams, we promote to all our student leavers that they should join our Ashton Alumni.
Our Alumni grows each year and allows for our school to keep in contact with our students and watch them as they grow as individuals and continue to do us proud, in an array of different career pathways, both locally and overseas.
We feel is it beneficial to promote our Alumni to our current students to show them that these now adults, doing amazing jobs across the world, sat in the very same seats and hall before leaving. We have an Alumni display board at the top of our main staircase in school, to assist in raising aspirations and showcasing to our students that anything is possible.
We have regular opportunities for our Alumni to speak to our students about their experiences both from when they were a student and their life now. These opportunities, which often take the form of assemblies or celebration evenings, are a platform we think allows our student to think about their own future and aspirations.
If you are Ashton Community Science College Alumni and would like to help raise the aspirations of our students (either by visiting our school or sharing your story with us) our careers adviser Christiana would love to hear from you! Please email her if you are interested.
