Our Alumni Network
We hope that your school days were some of the best days of your life and that you will stay in touch, keep us up to date with your achievements and come back and visit soon. In return we’ll update you with news of your former school friends, invite you to special events and help you stay well-connected within the global Coopers’ community.
The school in St Mary’s Lane is one of nearly 400 state schools and colleges across Britain which have registered with the charity Future First to set up networks of former students or alumni.
Future First’s vision is that every state school or college should be supported by a thriving, engaged alumni community that helps it to do more for its students.
More than 90,000 former students across Britain have already signed up to stay connected with their old school. They’re inspiring young people in a number of ways; as career and education role models, mentors or e-mentors, work experience providers, governors, donors or fundraisers.
It doesn’t matter when you left school, 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!
The school signed up to Future First’s scheme to help to build a network of past pupils with all their valuable experience will be vital in helping us to broaden current pupils’ jobs horizons and equip them for the world of work.

Remembering with fondness the first cohort of pupils coming to the new School in Upminster from the East End of London in September 1971. We plan to hold celebrations in September 2023 to mark the 50 years’ anniversary of the school in Upminster.
