Students at our Alton Campus benefit from two Centres of Excellence – A Level Centre of Excellence and Technical Centre of Excellence.
HSDC Alton A Level students gained a 99% pass rate in 2022, with nearly two-thirds of our students achieving the highest grades of A*- B, a huge increase of 11% from 2019.
A fantastic set of A Level results for Alton College student Charlie Morgan left him feeling excited and proud as he looked towards his next steps.
Charlie gained two A*s and an A, as well as a Distinction in Engineering, meaning he gained a place at the University of Southampton to study Civil Engineering.
Charlie, who also took part in the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award during his time at Alton College, said:
“I learnt to adapt my learning style due to the difficulties in normal teaching during COVID. I am a much more resilient person following my time at college.
“I’m really pleased with my results and am very happy that I have got into my first choice of university. I can’t wait to start on my next chapter of life.”
Triple A grades for Thomas Brewer in Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry meant that he was able to attend the University of Leeds to study Medicinal Chemistry.
Ex-Harrow Way School student Thomas said:
“The teaching staff are so supportive and push you to work hard and stay on track. All of the preparation we did also made the exams less stressful, I felt ready for them.”
Alton College students who studied A Level-equivalent Vocational and Technical courses in 2021/22 achieved a 98% pass rate and more than half of students achieved A* to B equivalent grades.
With seven T Levels currently being offered at the College and more set to begin from September 2023, our Technical Centre of Excellence continues to expand. Last academic year we unveiled our Gaming & Creative Digital Studio, which joined other fantastic facilities such as our purpose-built Engineering workshops, science labs and medical care centre.
With two Alton vocational teachers part of the prestigious World Skills UK Centre of Excellence, technical education at Alton has a bright future.
