Former pupils of Corby Business Academy are being invited to join a new network which is being set up for alumni of the school.

The aim of the network is to allow the school, which opened in 2008, to keep links with former students.

It will be run by Future First, a charity which operates similar networks for more than 500 state schools all over the country.

Head of sixth form, Kim Isaksen, said: “Now that the school is five years old, we felt it was the ideal time to begin what we hope will become a flourishing network of past students.

“We would urge any former students to sign up and become part of this exciting new network.”

Alex Shapland-Howes, managing director of Future First, said: “More than 39 per cent of state school students don’t know anyone in a job that they would like to do.

“If they see that someone who went to the same school and grew up in the same community has achieved a fulfilling and satisfying job, it helps them see it’s possible for them too.”
