My college has lots of other branches of colleges. Apparently these people have atteneded one of the branches. No idea who they are. More to the point, the centres they atteneded are no longer standing:
Dame Mary Coulshed
Judith Hann (Tomorrow's World presenter)
Julia Watson (former head girl), Casualty actress
My school doesn't even have a wiki page...
However, Jack O'Connell (Cook - Skins 3 & 4), Lauren Socha (Kelly from Misfits) & Robert Lindsay (Ben, My family) are all from the same city.
I hope to be put on that alumni list someday...

I liked it, the teaching was pretty good. What's your other option - Symonds? Tbh I think they're about equal (I have loads of friends who went to Symonds). Just go to whichever one is closer. That's how I based my decision, I could have more of a lie-in going to Barton :P
I love how you just knew that my other option would be symonds

Not at my school, but Lewis Hamilton went to a local school, although aparrantly he was a right brat and they don't boast about it.
I don't care, he's a bloody good driver and claim to fame for my town

I wish my school had a 'notible alumni' wikipedia page
the only sort of famous people who went to by school are Ben Alnwick (goalkeeper, used to play for Tottenham I think) and his brother Jak, who was in my form class, and who is England under 20 goalkeeper. He was also on some Ant and Dec programme the other week
Denise Welsh (she was in Waterloo Road and in Dancing on Ice) and Tim Healey's nephew and nieces are in my school...they were on 'all star family fortunes'!

Well old school now, we have a wikipedia article of notable alumni
