A school is calling on all its former pupils to help support its students of today.

Enfield Grammar School, in Market Place, Enfield Town, is on the lookout for former alumni to help its current batch of pupils make their way through their studies.

The idea was created by charity Future First to help state schools across the country get in touch with its former students.

Headteacher John Kerr said: “We believe Future First can help us to maintain contact with former students of the School that will hopefully benefit those students currently studying at Enfield Grammar.

“A network of former students with all their valuable experience will be vital in helping us to broaden current students’ job horizons and equip them better for the world of work.

“At the same time these former students can consider joining the Old Boys’ Association.”

Alex Shapland-Howes, managing director of Future First, said: “If they see that someone who went to the same school, grew up in the same community, has achieved a fulfilling and satisfying job, it helps them see it’s possible for them too.

“It’s really important for all students to be motivated to succeed in the working world and hearing first hand  from relatable people in interesting jobs can make a huge difference.”
