Inspiration Bank

It has become more important than ever for us all to feel connected, and to share inspiration.

Over the past few years, we have been building a bank of snapshots of the careers and inspirations of Old Latins, to inspire other alumni, students, staff and our wider community, and to help us all remember that we are part of a huge family of many thousands of people who have passed through the school gates over the decades, and gone on to live purposeful and very varied lives.

We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we have!

We’d love to hear your story . . . If you’d like to be added to our inspiration bank and potentially featured on this page, please get in touch and we’ll send you a list of questions and details about how to submit your responses. Thank you!

Latin Life . . . We also publish news and features about Old Latins in Latin Life, the twice-yearly RLS alumni magazine. If you’re an Old Latin (including recent school leavers!) and would like to be added to our list to receive Latin Life and news of events and reunions, please join RLS Connect, our online community of Old Latins, and we’ll keep in touch.

Mentoring . . . During 2024 we’re also working on creating a brand new mentoring programme, to enable sixth-form students to be mentored by an Old Latin. It will be invaluable (and hugely inspirational) for our students to get the experience and advice from former students from their school in whatever field they are looking to pursue. You can volunteer to be a mentor on your RLS Connect profile when you register. All mentoring will take place through RLS Connect and be monitored.

Inspiring future generations . . . Latin Inspires a community of Old Latins passionate about supporting their old school and helping to inspire future generations of Latins. Find out how you can play your part here
