When students leave Prenton we invite them to keep in touch and to become part of Prenton’s alumni. Our alumni association allows us to maintain links with students who have left, to find out where they have moved to and what they may be studying or where they are working and how their lives have developed since leaving us.

Commenting on her visit to Prenton, Lucy said ‘it was great to return to Prenton and to talk to students about their ambitions and aspirations. Prenton gave me a great starting point to my education and a solid basis on which to build my future.’
‘The teachers are so supportive and it was good to see that the current students share the same passion and enthusiasm that Prenton instilled in me. I wish them all every success.’
Before they leave us, we ask our Year 11 students about their time at Prenton – this is just some of the feedback they provided.
‘Prenton brings out the best in people. I felt so comfortable to be myself here.’
‘My time at Prenton gave me new and amazing opportunities.’
‘Prenton taught me that you can achieve your best and be the best.’
‘I have loved every minute and I am very sad to leave. Prenton has given me so many opportunities that I will never forget.’
