Futures and Alumni
The Green Room School is committed to providing a structured, pupil-centred Futures Programme which promotes equality of opportunity, inclusion and diversity. Our programme is tailored to the needs of individuals and focussed on unlocking potential, raising aspirations and improving the life chances of all our pupils.
Our Vision And Values
Our ambition is that all of our pupils leave The Green Room equipped to thrive in the next stage of their lives and into the future, with 0% NEET.
Once in Years 10 and 11, pupils are supported in thinking more seriously about post-16 transitions into college, apprenticeships or work. All pupils are encouraged and supported to gain work experience with local businesses in areas of potential interest. Bespoke visits are organised by members of staff to take pupils to visit colleges and other training providers, for open days and/or personalised visits.
Pupils never stop being part of The Green Room family and we work hard to keep in touch with pupils who have graduated. This has led to an ex-pupil carrying out work experience at the school and others offering to come into school to share their experiences of college and work after GRK.
Working With Parents and Carers
We strive to work in close partnership with parents and carers as together we help our pupils make informed choices about their future. We are always open to ideas and suggestions about how we can adapt our careers programme, or provide specific support, to further benefit our pupils.
Our school has developed good relationships with a number of local businesses, which has culminated in pupils gaining valuable work experience, as well as opening up opportunities for employer visits into school to engage with a larger number of pupils.
As a school, we are always keen to work with other local businesses for mutual benefit. If you are an employer and would like to discuss opportunities for collaboration, please contact our Futures Leader, Rob Mynard, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Alumni / Wings / Work Experience
Pupils never really leave The Green Room; they remain part of the family. We do our best to keep in regular contact with our Alumini, to take an interest in them as people, encourage them in their chosen paths and, where needed, offer ongoing practical support to help them thrive as they continue their education or take their first steps into employment.
