In an ever changing world Alton Convent School (Our Lady of Providence) still remains on the site at Anstey Lane. The buildings are still in place and new ones have been added but step through the doors and you can see a visible change. Carpet in many corridors, oak doors, and interactive white boards are amongst the things you will notice.
The Sixth Form Centrewas built in 1998 and has been extended twice to house the ever increasing numbers. A purpose built Creative & Performing Arts Centre was built in 2008 which houses dedicated music, art and a media suite, as well as a drama studio complete with full lighting rig and pull down screen.
At the other end of the site the Early Years department, including the Garden House Day Nursery has seen the addition of a new purpose built Baby Room where parents, if they choose, can send their children from the age of 6 months. This new venture continues to expand and in the foreseeable future will require additional buildings.
But perhaps the most recent change is theuse of the Marian Hall to a new style refectory. Freshly painted in muted greens and furnished in light oak styled wood it looks like a place where you would want to eat your school lunch!
