A group of 17 students from the Physics department at Alton College visited the Diamond Light Source at Harwell in Oxfordshire, where ground-breaking research is being carried out.

Good luck to the two members of Alton College Students' Union who are travelling to Liverpool to speak on #dropthelearningtax at the NUS conference tomorrow. They calculate if VAT was cut it could save us £300k a year.

Alton College student Abbie Hines, previously at St Nicholas School, will be featured on The One Show on BBC One in a section called ‘Medical Memories’ on Thursday 23 April.

Continuing with education after school means more than solely classroom based study. Each year we offer our students an array of trips at home and abroad to give them opportunity to travel and develop a range of skills.

Students at Alton College  raised over £1,000 from a variety of events, cake sales and collections for Comic Relief last week.  Over £500 was raised on campus and as the government has pledged to match all funds raised by students in the UK pound for pound, the total amount has doubled!

Geography students were inspired and motivated by Dr Vanessa Lawrence CB, Secretary General of Ordnance Survey International and Co-Chair of a United Nations committee, in Wessex Arts theatre last week. They also learnt how geographical principals affect everything from Olympic Torch relay routes to the NHS.
