Altrincham Grammar School for Girls is aiming to create a network of former students. We believe that your connection to your school should not end when you leave, and we would like all our past pupils to keep in touch. We are therefore delighted to let you know that we are now working with the charity Future First to help to strengthen the links that we have with our former students and help to build a thriving, engaged alumnae community.
We would very much like for you to continue to engage with the school alumnae and ask that you sign up to our new alumnae database, using the following link: https://networks.futurefirst.org.uk/former-student/AGGS. In addition, if you know of any friends who are former students of the school, please do pass on the link to them. Please note, this will replace our old database and will become the only means of communication with our former students.
We hope that by strengthening our alumnae links, we will be able to offer support to our current students in many ways, including as career role models, work experience providers, mentors, governors and even fundraisers or donors. Whether former students have gone on to be graphic designers, sports coaches or surgeons, we want current students to understand the different options that are out there for them. Very simply: if former students can do it, so can they.
