Our Alumni Network
The Ashton Sixth Form College Alumni Network is a resource for past students to keep in touch with the college. We are always fascinated to hear what former students have gone on to do after leaving and how your experience here helped to shape your career or open up opportunities and interests that are now part of your life. Over the years, some students from the College have gone on to achieve outstanding success in a huge variety of different fields.
We aim to keep you connected with the college via a programme of events, reunions and networking opportunities. Whether you studied a further education or higher education course, you can sign up to our alumni service.
As an ex-student of the college you can get involved and keep in touch with us in various ways. Through our alumni service you can:
- Keep up to date with college events
- Get involved and support our current students
- Connect with us and share your story – We encourage you to keep in touch and let us know what you’re doing now and how the college helped you to get to where you are today. If you’d like to feature as a case study and have an interesting story to tell then please get in touch. This is an ideal opportunity for you to share your success and inspire our current students to see what they could achieve with hard work and dedication to their studies.
- Connect with friends and former colleagues as part of an expanding business and professional network.

Kyle Barnett, Fire Fighter for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, returned to Ashton Sixth Form College to volunteer with the Sport and Public Services department. Kyle began a Level 2 course in Public Services at Ashton Sixth Form College in 2012. Following the successful completion of this, Kyle then went on to progress to the Level 3 Public Services course. During his final year at the college, Kyle applied to join the Fire Brigade. He passed the application process and fitness tests required and, following his Level 3 course in Public Services, went straight in to employment. Public Services courses prepare students for a career in the public sector. Developing the skills required in the sector and gaining a broad knowledge of government, policies, crime and society, prepare students to excel after college.
