We are so proud of everything that our alumni have achieved so far. We would love to keep in touch and for alumni to come back and talk to younger students about their experiences to help them in their choices for the future. You may not realise it but you are the role models for the younger years and whatever you go on to do will resonate with at least one student.
We would like to be able to contact you a few times a year to let you know what we’ve been up to and to offer you opportunities to participate in Petchey Alumni activities such as sports tournaments as well as music and drama performances.
Our Alumni Coordinator is Ms Nelson: 020 7275 1537

Jay Popkin (former Student Principal 2016-17)
"Jay came to the academy in 2011 and left the University Gateway last year to study mathematics at Warwick. Since then he has continued his political passions, involving himself in SU elections as well as becoming the Publicity Officer for Warwick Labour. Despite leading what could be considered a typical student first year, he finished with a 2:1 and is ecstatic to be back."
Kasia Blazejewska (left Petchey in 2015)
A winner of the Wider World award at our celebration of achievements evening. She is a previous winner and currently at Birmingham Uni studying Sport Science after 9 months gap year working in Spain. She also achieved the highest UCAS points in Year 13 two years ago.
Jordan Glanfield (former Student Principal, 2015-16)
"I'm currently studying a 4 year Computer Science degree at Imperial College London. It's going well, I'm enjoying the student life and independence and we study some fascinating computing topics. Imperial is very intense and keeps us exceptionally busy; however, I'm using what I've learned so far, as well as building upon my past experiences, to design and develop a video game in my spare time, which I hope to publish some time over the next year. Working through my studies and balancing them against such personal projects has been difficult but I am greatly enjoying the challenge!"
Ummy Bajuny (former Student Principal, 2015-16)
"I am currently working as a HR Administrative Apprentice at Public Health England. In addition to this, I am still taking up extra curricular activities such as a being part of a mentoring scheme within the company and I am still volunteering on weekends too."
