“We signed up to Future First because their ethos really resonated with us, particularly around the power of role models and the impact former students can have broadening young people’s horizons.”
-Angela Inglese, Assistant Principal at St Dominic’s Sixth Form College in Harrow, London

They said about Future First
"Keeping in touch with past pupils is very important to us. They can be a real inspiration to our current students, and we find their interest in the 'old school' and their willingness to help and support us far exceeds what we had thought before we got properly organised with a network. Future First has proved to be invaluable in moving us from a school which was interested in its alumni to one which is proactive in really engaging with them to our mutual advantage"
Headteacher, Risca Community Comprehensive School, Wales
"FutureFirst has created a very effective way for us to keep in touch with our alumni. It is simple for us to send out requests for help and we have had a lovely response each time we have asked for something. We now have a very skilled alumni on a small fundraising Trust for our disabled students. Two former students were guests of honour at our Celebration Evening for the 2015 GCSE cohort and gave inspiring accounts of their life since school. Thank you Future First! "
