Past Students

Message for Past Students

Humberston Academy is creating a database with our former students to keep in touch with our school leavers. Our alumni can support us in so many ways, from volunteers and in-school speakers to work experience providers and fundraisers. 

We are looking for former students to join our network and they can sign up by contacting Reception <>

Whether you’re at university, doing an apprenticeship or have been in a variety of jobs for the last 20 years, we would love you to join our alumni network so that we can stay connected and let you know about exciting opportunities we hear about. 

There is no obligation to do anything after you’ve signed up but you’ll receive a few updates to let you know what we’re up to here at the school and you’ll also hear about opportunities to get involved if you want to.   

If you have any questions, please get in touch with Reception <>
