Congratulations to second year student Meagan Harrington, previously at Heath End School, on being awarded a Morehead-Cain scholarship to study at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill majoring in Anthropology and minoring in Geography.

Enthusiastic teams from several Hampshire secondary schools demonstrated their commitment to Alton College's Above and Beyond competition, putting a lot of thought into this year's topic: 'A significant anniversary – then and now: Consider the impact of an event that may be commemorated in 2019’.

Huge congratulations to Foundation Learning student Ben Tyler who has recently returned from the World Special Olympic Games in Abu Dhabi where he won two medals in tennis representing GB.

A celebration of The Alton College Foundation’s 300th Scholarship for Excellence and 20 years since the charity was established, proved inspirational. The 17th annual Alton College Foundation Scholarship Awards ceremony saw the presentation of scholarships across a range of subjects awarded to 16 students – among them the student chosen to be the 300th recipient.  

The debating society have had a very busy month competing in national and international competitions. On Saturday March 9th Jack Jillings and Seb Cawte competed in finals day at the Oxford Union. The day was intense; debating in four rounds against teams from the UK and overseas. 

Congratulations to three College students recently picking up awards at the annual East Hampshire Sports Awards. In a really competitive field, black belt judoka Lucy Williams was named Junior Sportswoman of the Year for her fantastic achievements both locally and nationally representing GB.
