Quarter of a century of success from former academy pupils; SPONSOR'S MESSAGE.

THIS month marks a significant milestone for Middlesbrough's Macmillan Academy, as it is 25 years since its doors first opened to students.

The academy has a tremendous amount of pride in its former students and has always been keen to maintain close links with them.

It has become tradition for the academy to invite former students back to present the awards at the Macmillan Academy Awards Evening at Middlesbrough Town Hall each year and this year the academy is delighted to welcome back former Head Boy Rashpal Singh, now a local GP.

In addition, throughout term time the academy benefits further from the support of its alumni who offer support by hosting work experience students, running vocational seminars and assisting with careers events.

The Macmillan Alumni Association is growing and would love to hear from other former students, so whether you recently left or were one among one of the earliest intake back in 1989 in the old City Technology College days, you can get in touch through Facebook or via our website where you can also view short film profiles of an increasing number of former students to find out where other people's journey's took them after leaving Macmillan Academy.

Macmillan Alumni Association: |www.macmillanacademy.org.uk Former student profiles: | www.macmillanacademy.org.uk/post16/nav/after/former.php The Macmillan Alumni Association will be inviting former students to a special evening event so that they can catch up with old friends and make new ones in what the academy hopes will become an annual event in their lives and the alumni events calendar.

As well as being a great social outing, the event promises to give people a chance to network and mingle with people who share similar professional interests and whom they instantly have something in common with an education from Macmillan Academy.
