Welcome to our Alumni page

EN loves to hear from former students and we are always inviting them to get in touch and share their stories with our current students and to help encourage and inspire future students.

The College wants to hear from their alumni and share their success stories to inspire local young people to achieve the highest level in their learning and to have the very highest aspirations for themselves and their families.

EN has a long and proud history of supporting young people to reach the very highest levels in their education. Former students have gone on to acting in the West End, running their own businesses, working in the NHS as dentists, doctors and surgeons, teaching or working across the World, designing new structures as engineers and architects, working in the military and numerous other careers.

EN Principal, Dr Catherine Richards said; “Our former students are a true inspiration for our current young people and we are very proud to include top civil servants, musicians, artists and professors as members of our alumni. We also have many former students now teaching at the College which we are extremely proud of and 6 of our 8 middle managers were former students too. This must be a record in further education.”

If you have stories about former East Norfolk students that you would like to share, please do get in touch with the switchboard and we would love to hear from you on 01493 662234.

Joshua Cork

University of East Anglia Student

During my time at EN, I studied Maths, Geology, Geography, Environmental Sciences. I’m currently halfway through my third year of an integrated Masters (MSci) in Environmental Sciences at UEA. 

What I think I enjoyed most about my time at the college was the wide choice of subjects that I don’t think you can find at any other college in the area. The opportunity to study all three Earth and Environmental Sciences at A Level gave me an appreciation of how global processes are linked and the amount of knowledge gained through this set me up for university, as studying unique subjects such as Geology and Environmental Studies meant that I already had a good idea of processes that many of my peers were learning for the first time.


Silvana Hubbard

Custody Detention Officer

I am working for Norfolk Constabulary as a Custody Detention Officer. I move around Police Custodies, working all over Norfolk and Suffolk. I applied for the job and with the help of my volunteer work for the police, and managed to be successful. I studied Criminology, Psychology A Level, Spanish A Level, English Lit AS, History AS, and Law during my time at EN, and this helped me get to where I am today. The Criminology course helped be so much in terms of knowledge of the Criminal Justice System which I find useful in my current occupation.


Rhiannon Forder

Student Adult Nurse at UEA

I studied Biology AS, Psychology A level, Sociology A level and Health and Social Care A level at college, and I am now a second year Student Adult Nurse at UEA. After gaining my A levels with EN, I got an apprenticeship at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital as a Health Care Assistant on a surgical assessment ward. 

Whilst studying at EN, I enjoyed the class experience! My teachers were fun, friendly and engaging. The resources provided were so helpful and were a brilliant revision tool for the exams. I also enjoyed the social aspect, having different people in each class, I made lots of friends and had great support from these people.


Jamie Hazell

Trainee Building Control Surveyor

My IT and Business qualifications that I learnt at EN allowed me to enter a Local Government Apprenticeship program at East Suffolk Local Authority. I then studied a Business Admin qualification to work within the Planning and Building control team. With this experience, I am now training to become a Building Control Surveyor.

Studying at EN, I was provided with full support from my teachers, which allowed me to gain the qualifications required for my job.
