Gifted and Talented Events for Schools
Each year we provide a variety of Gifted and Talented events for school pupils. These include inspiring talks from leading academics from prestigious universities such as the University of Oxford on topics such as 'how to gain a competitive edge when applying to university' and former Alton College students giving insight into what it is really like studying at the University of Oxford and Cambridge, to creative and critical thinking workshops and team challenges and competitions.
Former student Ali Bayliss, previously at Perins School is now studying Economics at The University of Cambridge. Here he talks about the benefits of studying at Alton College.
Last year students from The Petersfield School scooped first prize at the College's Above and Beyond Competition with their presentation on 'The Refugee Crisis'.
