This week Alton College celebrated 36 years since its official opening on 23 May, 1980 by then Secretary of State, Mark Carlisle. The College was one of the first purpose-built Sixth Forms in the UK and opened for teaching in September 1978 to a cohort of 226 students. Today, approximately 2,000 students from over 97 different schools travel from across four counties to study here.

Paul Cumner and Chris McLennan, both previously at Robert May’s School, recently took part in the judging team for the National Final of the F1 in Schools Competition held at Silverstone. The main objective of the competition is to help change the perceptions of STEM for 9 – 19 year olds by creating a fun and exciting learning environment.
