Princethorpe Connect Members' Area

Coming Soon - Watch this space!!

The Development Office and Old Princethorpians are delighted to announce that we shall be unveiling a new alumni and friends of Princethorpe community database with effect from September 2019.

Toucan Tech, used by an increasing number of independent schools in the UK, will offer a wealth of benefits for all former pupils, parents, staff and friends of the College.

OPs will be able to connect with other users, link their profiles directly from LinkedIn, find friends, express preferences for communication, and all with the added security offered by a GDPR compliant, secure cloud server.

Toucan Tech will be working with the College over the next few weeks, to design a bespoke and branded set of pages for our Princethorpe community, which will include tabs such as home page, news and events, all accessed via the new Foundation website.

Our community will see a much more modern, bright and colourful community webpage, with an immediately inviting “magazine-like” feel.

As the network grows, there will be custom groups that alumni can join themselves, allowing them to see other members with similar histories or interests e.g. London Alumni, 1st XV Rugby Players or Class of 2018 etc.

Members will be able to log in with Linked-In or Facebook details, allowing a smooth and modern approach to social media which users are used to working with on other platforms.

A Pupil Connect feature will allow OPs to reconnect together in a “Facebook” type community, but within the privacy of a “members only” area that requires their log in. Also, a Linked-In profile can be imported for up to date career information. Similarly, alumni can submit news stories for the web site via a portal.

A family line will allow individuals to associate themselves with other members, showing a family tree of alumni – parents, siblings, cousins etc, all within a totally secure framework.

In time, a careers platform, will enable OPs to use a networking facility to offer careers advice, mentoring, interview skills, work experience or internship in specific fields to younger alumni or current pupils.
