Welcome to Alton College

I am delighted to welcome you to Alton College and hope you will find what you are looking for on our website.  If you need any help, please contact the College and we will answer your questions about learning with us.

If you’re thinking about the next stage in your education from school, or want to return to education or training at a later stage in your life, then you need go no further.  This website is all about our College and will help you discover why so many students, just like you, want to come here.

The College offers an excellent choice of A Levels including all the ‘facilitating’ subjects which are particularly favoured by the UK’s elite research intensive Russell Group universities.  We are proud of our exceptionally long history of providing high-quality academic education in Alton and of the many students who have gone on to achieve outstanding results at the country’s best universities.

In addition to our academic programmes, we offer a selection of courses, principally Level 2 and 3 BTEC Diplomas and English and Mathematics GCSEs, to complement our A Level curriculum.  Many of our vocational students also progress to university, although some prefer to move straight into employment whilst retaining the option to study at university at a later stage.

Our students speak highly of our supportive and very experienced specialist staff.  Universities and employers comment on how well-qualified and well-prepared our students are for the challenges and responsibilities of university life and the workplace. 

If you need advice and guidance about your options at the College and what we offer, we will help you through your choices.

Find out why hundreds of students choose to study at Alton College each year.  Alton College is a very special college, and we are pleased to offer you:

  • An excellent and rigorous academic education supported by teaching in relatively small groups;
  • An exceptionally high level of individual support to help you realise your full potential;
  • Experienced, well-educated academic staff who are fully committed to your success;
  • Excellent learning facilities

As part of our strategic expansion programme, we are preparing to join forces with Havant and South Downs College to not only reinforce our A Level offering but also to look at the development of our Higher Education provision and in 2020, T-Levels. 

I hope you find our website helpful and informative in choosing your courses and keeping up-to-date with College news.

I look forward to meeting you and wish you all the best.
