History and Alumni

Future First

We would like to keep in touch with our former pupils and staff, and would encourage anyone who is keen to become part of our community to sign up below.

We are working with Future First to keep you and Wanstead High School in touch, with the aim of providing opportunities for current pupils at our school which we hope will benefit you in many ways too. Opportunities could include mentoring, talking to our pupils about your time at university or even offering work experience placements.

As well as keeping you up to date with news from Wanstead High School, the network can offer you lots of ways to support the young people now sat in your old seats. Whether you are still in the area or have moved far away, we’d love to have your help.

Former pupils please sign up here to keep in touch.  Thank you for your support.
