At Chessbrook, our support for our students goes beyond when they leave us in Year 11. Our doors are always open for support, advice and guidance. The relationships we build, last well into adulthood and as a result of those strong bonds, our former students often visit to celebrate their achievements with us.
We were delighted to welcome Luke back to Chessbrook to share his story with our students. He spoke with such passion and enthusiasm about the importance of education and making the most of their opportunities at Chessbrook.
We were delighted to hear that he was moving on to study Law at university. To support him in his studies, we were able to gift him a Chromebook to ensure he had the tools to succeed.
Luke returned to our awards evening to share his experience with parents, students, staff and members from our management committee. As part of his speech he was able to give some good advice to those students in the audience.
"Be proud of who you are. You've got a future to build and not people to impress. Be hungry for your dreams" Luke
It was lovely to have former students Holly, Abi and Jamie to Chessbrook talk at our recent careers event. They spoke to our KS4 students about the importance of making the most of the opportunities given to them and gave importance advice for their future.
We loved seeing former student Joseph back at Chessbrook! Having completed Yr 11 with us, he went onto college & now studies Psychology at Nottingham Trent University. Joseph also has ambitions to play professional rugby so we hope that aspiration comes to fruition!
