Join the Alumni network 

Are you a former student of Acland Burghley School?

We want to hear from you! Your experiences since leaving could help to motivate and inspire the current generation of Acland Burghley students to feel more confident in making decisions about their future.

Join the network to inspire 

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

Join the network to keep in touch 

You can choose how and when you help – perhaps you could act as a career and education role model, provide work experience, become a mentor or help with fundraising.

Join the network to get involved 

It doesn’t matter when you left us, whether you’re in further education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, we would love to stay in touch.

Too busy to volunteer?

Why not set up a regular donation to the School Trust instead? You could help an ambitious project to return our Grade 2 listed assembly hall to its original glory get off the ground or make sure all students have access to excellent extra-curricular activities.
