Is there someone you wish you could get back in contact with? A new website may be able to help you.

The website can help you reconnect with schoolmates from over 24,000 schools in England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

Schoolmates.co.uk is free and can be used by anyone who attended school in the last 100 years.

Chris Goodwin, founder of Schoolmates.co.uk, said:

“The beauty of the site is that it can be used by anyone and has appeal across all generations whether they are Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook users, the one commonality is that they all went to school.

“I see the site as an extension of social media, but also caters for those who don’t want to be on Facebook or Twitter but would still like to be part of the community.

“Many of our users wont have heard of Friends Reunited so for them the idea is fresh, and for those who are old enough to remember – then they already grasp the concept.

“This system has its own USPs and allows users to find old classmates by name or even nickname, and they can find friends from however many educational establishments they have attended.

“Even if you didn’t go to school together, you can still search schools in your area and create your own custom group of mates.”
