Welcome LSA Alumni!


On 12th November 2020 we started the first celebration of our Alumni in Form Time.

Siobahn Cartmell

Siobahn was one of our PP students who excelled with sheer grit and determination at GCSE and A level, went on an FSM residential for Law at Edge Hill Uni at the end of Y12 and was inspired to go on to achieve a First Class Law Degree. She is now an officer in the British Army in the Adjutant General's Corps ( which most people know as the Military Police and legal services etc). Siobahn kindly volunteered to share her story with our students during form time in the form of a PowerPoint and a pre recorded video.

Jake Richardson

Jake is a Freelance Music journalist who left us in 2013,(some people may recognise him as one of our occasional exam invigilators too). Jake attended LSA from Year 7 right through to taking his A levels in Year 13, afterwards he went to York University and studied English Literature and Politics. While being a student there, Jake started a music blog where he wrote about gigs and festivals he had been too. The blog became a real success with other students writing for him too. Jake realised that Music Journalism was what he wanted to do and pursued that, becoming a Freelance journalist, writing for a number of different magazines and press outlets. Jake managed to arrange some work experience at Kerrang! magazine as a student and this helped him make contacts that have seen him interviewing bands from all over the world. Jake’s articles are now a regular feature in Kerrang and Alternative Press among others, even achieving world exclusive interviews that have made the front page.
