Our vision is to create and engage a community that reconnects with the school and offers members an opportunity to connect with each other through our website and social media channels. Our Community includes Claremont Fan Court alumni, Claremont and Fan Court alumni, current and former staff, parents and former parents as well as all friends of the school.
Our online community will provide opportunities to network and engage on a professional and social level. It will give access to a sporting and social events calendar. It will also support our members being able to share career experience with our senior students through mentioning, careers evenings and work experience opportunities, as we look to support those moving into life after Claremont Fan Court.
On leaving Claremont Fan Court School all students will automatically become members of our alumni community, which has over 4,500 members. Everyone is invited to set up their online profile to keep their own contact information up to date, share news and connect with their former class friends. In this way, they will develop an ongoing relationship linked to our school’s future.
Our community will receive a very warm welcome from us here in the alumni and development office whenever you wish to get in back in touch. We would love to hear from you and we are very happy to arrange a visit or offer you a tour for the school. We love forward to staying in touch and hearing your news.
