Let’s get together…

More than 1,000 alumni have signed up to a specialist-networking site, which is bringing old boys and girls of Bradford Grammar School (BGS) together.

BGS is the first school in Yorkshire to have access to this ground breaking online system BGS-Alumni to link its graduates. It offers the opportunity for former pupils to set up or import their profiles from LinkedIn, develop professional connections with one another and mentor students or young graduates.

Alumni that have already signed up include Coronation Street star Richard Hawley, Community Leader Dr Rudi Leavor, British Swimming Champion Adrian Moorhouse, RAF Fighter Pilot Dheeraj Bhasin, British Sailing Team Sailor Hector Simpson and Wine & Spirits Columnist at The Independent Adrian Smith.

With experts ranging from CEOs, managing directors and business owners to a wide range of specialists, teachers and students, Alumni are able to provide sound career advice, guidance and job offers from a wide variety of industries. These range from Animation, Medicine, Aviation, Broadcast Media, Engineering, Government Relations, Computer Games, Fine Art, and Veterinary to Music, Philanthropy and the Military.

“We want to offer our alumni and students a one-stop-shop of real value,” says BGS Head of Higher Education and Careers, Sarah Flaherty, “Our alumni and careers programme both have a role to play in boosting graduate opportunity, employability and working more closely together.”

“It provides a platform for empowering a valuable network for sharing expertise, knowledge and experience. The system is also recognised as a thought leader in alumni relations so we know we’re tapping into an extremely intuitive and engaging platform.”

BGS Headmaster, Simon Hinchliffe, said: “The affection that Old Bradfordians (OBs) feel towards their alma mater is palpable and one of our many strengths. We are deeply grateful to those OBs who support the School by donating generously to our fee assistance programme, giving talks, offering work experience, and attending careers events. Many OBs want to give something back.”

“BGS-alumni.com allows us to engage with our alumni on a deeper level, to broaden and develop relationships. We take great pride in thanking our alumni for contributing much to the School’s development; the positive impact they have at BGS and the wider community cannot be understated.”
