Calling all former students
If you’re a former student of Arnold Hill Academy, we want to hear from you!
Your experiences since leaving could help to motivate and inspire our current students to feel more confident in making decisions about their future. We’d love you to join our alumni network and stay connected with the school.
We’ve partnered with the national education charity Future First, who specialise in helping schools like ours to stay connected with their former students.
You can choose how and when you help – perhaps you can act as a career and education role model, provide work experience, become a mentor in person or online, or help with donations, fundraising or even apply to become a governor.
At Arnold Hill, we want to build an Alumni to support our current students and show them all the options open to them. It’s also great for us to hear what you have been doing. 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, there are still ways you can help.
In order to sign up, just follow this link and fill in the online form – we promise it will only take a couple of minutes.

Isobel scoops Creatives Award
Isobel has been dancing at the Centre for Advanced Training in contemporary dance for three years. She has danced nationally and internationally, training three times a week in Nottingham. On Tuesday, she attended the Young Creatives Award ceremony at Nottingham Playhouse and was described by the judges as "an incredible young person, achieving a very high standard as a choreographer and dancer". She won the 13-15 age category for Dance, this time for her choreography and dance ability. Isobel also performed at the awards ceremony, for a second time, with Xzibit young creatives.
This summer Isobel is performing at the 02 arena and has achieved a place at the prestigious National One Dance festival for the second time, performing this year at the Southbank, London with Next Door Dance Company.
Congratulations Isobel what amazing achievements!
