Alumni - Next Steps
Pimlico Academy alumni have gone on to impressive universities and careers. Our students have won places at Princeton, Cambridge, Oxford, Durham, LSE, UCL and Kings College London. Alumni career paths have included law, medicine, business, government and media.
Former Pimlico Academy students have contributed to our Raising Aspirations programme, offering their support in the following ways: talking to students about their university experiences and careers, mentoring students and providing subject-specific academic support. Alumni have also offered work shadowing and work experience placements for current Pimlico Academy students. This represents an excellent opportunity for the alumni to maintain contact with the school and to make a real contribution to the experiences of our students.
In the past academic year alumni members have been invited to attend social gatherings and events including lectures, art shows and music concerts.
