Alumni

At The Russett School we are very proud of what our alumni have gone on to accomplish and we want to celebrate their achievements by creating an informal Alumni Group that will offer members the opportunity to share their post Russett stories with current students.

Our alumni are living successful lives in the community and we want to stay connected and support their journeys. Some have gone on to live independently; others have secured employment or college placements and many access groups in the community. The Russett Alumni Group Objectives are:

  • To meet twice yearly at The Russett School to exchange views and experiences with current students
  • To produce a biannual newsletter
  • Use Facebook as a networking platform to stay connected
  • Host informal coffee mornings at preferred destinations in the community

STAY CONNECTED

The First Meeting of The Russett School Alumni – Wednesday 18th May 2022

We hosted our first ‘Alumni’ group meeting this week, it was a fantastic opportunity to invite past pupils into school to find out about
their journey post Russett. The afternoon was a huge success! We plan to offer this twice per year which will inform our plans for provision setting and how we can future improve our offer in helping our learners and their families to prepare for adulthood.
