Alumni Did you go to Glyn School? If you’re a former student who would like to support current students, the school would love to hear from you! Right now, there are students in the assembly hall where you once sat, facing similar challenges and opportunities that you did. Being connected to you could really help them. The school in The Kingsway is one of nearly 500 state schools and colleges across Britain which have registered with the charity Future First to set up networks of former students or alumni. Future First’s vision is that every state school or college should be supported by a thriving, engaged alumni community that helps it to do more for its students. More than 60,000 former students across Britain have already signed up to stay connected with their old school. They’re inspiring young people in a number of ways; as career and education role models, mentors or e-mentors, work experience providers, governors, donors or fundraisers. It doesn’t matter when you left school, whether you’re in further education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, there are still ways you can help! “More than 39 per cent of state school students don’t know anyone in a job they’d like to do,” said Alex Shapland-Howes, Managing Director of Future First. “If they see that someone who went to the same school, grew up in the same community, has achieved a fulfilling and satisfying job, it helps them see it’s possible for them too. It’s really important for all students to be motivated to succeed in the working world and hearing first hand from relatable people in interesting jobs can make a huge difference.” Head of Glyn School, Ian Keary, said,” We are really excited about connecting with former Glyn School students using the Future First networks programme. We believe that the valuable experience of the former students will be vital in helping us to prepare our current students for the next steps in their lives, whether that be the challenges of further education or the world of employment.” Marion Meadows, who manages the Future First programme at the school, is waiting to hear from former students on MeadowsM@glynschool.org.

Glyn-Freemans CCF Meets PM David Cameron 'On Wednesday, cadets from the RAF section of Glyn Freemen’s Combined Cadet Force (CCF) were invited to No.10 Downing Street for a meeting with David Cameron, the Prime Minister, about cadet expansion in state schools. We were fortunate to meet with him in the garden of No. 10 and he asked us what we had enjoyed the most about the CCF. I thought  it was the flying and being able to do barrel rolls, whilst Tom had enjoyed shooting. We said that we were  looking forward to going on camp in in the Summer to RAF St Mawgan. After  having a photo we were shown round The  Cabinet Room by one of the Prime Minister’s secretaries and told the history of some of the pieces. One caught my eye which was a gold sheathed sword presented by Ronald Reagan to Margaret Thatcher. 'Mr Chaloner and I were interviewed later in the afternoon, for a documentary on Cadet Forces for 299 Sky. It was a fantastic day and a great honour to represent Glyn School and the CCF. ' Luke Laidlaw 9 Tudor The  Combined Cadet Force of Glyn School and City of London Freemen’s School is flourishing under the Contingent Commander from Glyn and staff from both schools.  The enthusiasm and commitment of both staff and cadets is admirable and a recent inspection by Colonel Etherington OBE was highly complimentary of the unit.  Since September the cadets have had the opportunity to attend weekend camps, fly and shoot as well as gaining their proficiency awards and shooting badges.   The unit currently has 50 cadets and this number is expected to double when the new recruits join next term. The cadets enjoy the challenge of the training environment as well as having the chance to embrace the opportunities that CCF can offer.  Glyn School and City of London Freemen’s School look forward to developing this positive and rewarding partnership. Quote from James Miller age 13 In Combined Cadet Force we have learnt skills that are useful for everyday life which include: navigation and first aid.  Other skills, which are probably not that useful for living in Epsom include: camouflage and concealment and skill at Arms. We have been away on a weekend camp  where we had the chance to shoot a L98 A2 rifle, go on the assault course and do some navigation which included a afternoon 4km walk over the Sussex hills. When people ask me why join the CCF I say for the experience, team building and the chance to try somethings that you would not normally have the chance to do in school with with people you might not see every day.  Also somehow in the CCF when I have  just become good at a skill or activity there is always something new round the corner which always surprises me.
