Stay connected to Engayne
We would love you to join this community and stay connected with Engayne. Were you a pupil at Engayne? Or do you know someone who was?
We need people from a range of careers and pathways to open our pupils’ eyes to what’s possible in the future and help to enhance school life. You could support us in many ways – as role models, assembly speakers, fundraisers, classroom volunteers, governors and more. There is no obligation to do anything after you’ve signed up but you’ll receive a few updates to let you know what we’re up to.
If you would like to stay involved in supporting our school, sign up as a ‘friend’ here (or, if you happen to be a former pupil yourself select that option): https://networks.futurefirst.org.uk/signup/engayneprimary
