Alumni – Academian’s Association
At Accrington Academy Sixth Form, we hope that your two years with us will be memorable but, in the nicest possible way, our job is to move you on – to employment, apprenticeships or higher education! That being said, we value the relationships and investment that you develop over your time with us and to that end, you never really leave
Upon graduating from Sixth Form, you can enrol as a member of our alumni, Academians Association, and thus keep up to date with the developments and events we have going on after you have left.
We have an annual Staff vs Alumni football match in the summer, where students come and catch up with old staff and pit their skills on the pitch. This usually couples with our Shine event, where we showcase the Academy’s performing arts talents – our alumni often join us for this memorable evening.
23rd March 2016 saw our first Alumni Reunion Dinner – a formal dinner to introduce our Alumni President, hear stories of yonder year and see how you could stay involved in the life of the Sixth Form. There were representatives from every year group that has studied at the Sixth Form and we hope to make this an annual event for alumni to look forward to!
Many students come back to visit informally and through ECM Days, where they tell tales of university life and often give invaluable advice to current and prospective students. This is also shown through writing articles for Sixth Form magazine, Academia. Anyone wishing to write articles about university life, their subject specialisms, apprenticeships or their memories of Accrington Academy, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
