The schools we choose, and what we say about them, are founded on parents’ views. If you know this school, please share your views with us.

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

At Alton College we offer a wide range of provision to support students with additional learning needs, embodying a strong spirit of inclusion. In a recent Ofsted inspection support for students was highlighted as 'Outstanding'. We have specialist staff that provide 1 to 1 support for students with Dyslexia, and have good access to other specialists for advice (e.g. sensory impairment /physical disability) whenever needed. Our provision includes: a discrete programme for students with moderate learning difficulties; a range of supported level 1 and 2 vocational courses; specialist support for students with Specific Learning Difficulties at any level but especially at Advanced level of study; and subject specific support provided in all curriculum areas. We have a unique partnership arrangement with Treloar College (a neighbouring specialist FE College for students with Physical Disabilities). In June 2004 the two colleges were jointly awarded an Association of Colleges Beacon Award (sponsored by Mencap and RNIB) for Inclusive Learning. We currently have in the region of 30 'Treloar students' mostly taking Advanced level qualifications with us through this long standing partnership. Nov 09.
