Wessex Arts is excited to launch it's first comedy night in partnership with the Ministry Comedy.

BBC3's Paul McCaffrey (and stand up guest on Alton Alumnus Russell Howard's Good News show) and friends will perform on Friday 2 May 8.30pm.

Tickets cost £12 (£10 concessions) and are available to staff, students and members of the public here

Photgraphs of Mountains, Mules and Medinas will be on display at the Wessex Arts Centre from 23 April - 23 May, thanks to Alton College Photography students.

The students snapped the amazing shots on a recent College trip to Morocco.

The exhbition is free and open to all staff, students and members of the public.

Current students, many of whom are on the More Able and Talented Programme, had a real life insight into studying at Oxbridge when several Alton Alumnus who are studying at Oxford and Cambridge (see right) returned to campus last week for a Q&A session as part of the Applying to Competitive Courses module. 

Year 10 pupils from Amery Hill, Bohunt School and Eggar's School are better placed to choose which A level subjects to study at Alton College thanks to recent visits to their favourite subject areas.

If you haven't attended a bespoke session - and even if you have - on Friday 4 July we invite hundreds of Year 10's for our fantastic 'Taster Day'. Hope to see you then!

Thinking of studying A Levels at Alton College before university?

Former student LIzzie Cole (right) went on to receive a BA (Hons) in Natural Sciences at Newnham College at the University of Cambridge and is now working for a PhD at the University of St Andrews after gaining A grades at A Level.


For the fourth time in its six year history, Alton College has won the trophy for Best College at the Hampshire AS Further Maths Puzzle Day this month.

The Puzzle Day was open to all the schools and colleges in Hampshire that offer AS Further Maths. Alton College took joint first and third place plus the Best College trophy.
