City of Norwich School

CNS Alumni

Are you a former student at City of Norwich School or do you know a former student who may be interested in joining the CNS Alumni?

We have partnered with the national education charity Future First, who specialise in helping schools to stay connected with their former students.

If you were a member of CNS, your experiences since leaving could help to motivate and inspire our current students to feel more confident in making decisions about their future.  You can choose how and when you help – perhaps you can act as a career and education role model, provide work experience or maybe become a mentor.

The school would love to hear from former students in established professions and recent leavers in further education, whether they live nearby or have moved away.  If you are interested in finding out more, you can contact Lisa George, Sixth Form Progress Coordinator, on Alternatively, you can sign up with Future First by following the link below and filing in the online form – it will only take a couple of minutes.

So far, nearly 150 former students from a range of careers have registered to offer their talent and experience to current students.  This year we will be running a series of events where current students will meet former students to improve their knowledge of the world of work. Below are some of our Alumni that we have had the pleasure of welcoming back to CNS.
