Our Local Offer

Teachers are aware of the individual needs of students and Learning Support Assistants are widely used to support learning and develop independence both in and out of the classroom. There are dyslexia specialists who assess, plan and deliver teaching for students with learning difficulties. Examination access arrangements are put in place for students that need it.

Setting out what's what

To keep our College running smoothly for everyone, we need to work well together and respect each other. That's why we've got policies. They're suggestions and rules that set out what's what, so we all know where we stand and what to do - and not do.

Charlotte wins The One Show competition

Alton College alumna Charlotte Bradley has won the BBC’s The One Show’s amateur painting competition.

The painting that saw Charlotte reach the top three in the competition; ‘Fred’s Wife’ was inspired by a charismatic elderly couple she saw while out in Fleet. She asked if she could take their photo but she only caught the husband’s name, Fred.
