Coronavirus Update

Eastleigh College has moved to online learning, as such campuses are closed to the vast majority of learners. The College remains open (including over the Easter holiday period) for 16-18 learners of key workers, and those learners with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). However, for both categories, learners are asked to stay at home where it is safe to do so. Consistent with public health advice, learners and staff are asked to follow public health guidance and the steps outlined via the 'read more' button.

New premises for the Academy of Music and Sound

The Academy of Music and Sound, who work in partnership with Eastleigh College on music performance courses, have recently opened their new premises at High Street Spitfire House in Southampton.

The Academy is celebrating its 10th year as the premier provider of music education in Southampton, and the new premises have allowed them to expand and improve on their facilities. The new location features acoustically hung walls, sound-proof doors, and brand new equipment. 

An opening ceremony was recently held to celebrate the move and showcase the new facilities, which was attended by local music businesses, local schools and colleges, and graduates from the Academy. The Right Worshipful Mayor of Southampton was also in attendance, and cut the ribbon to mark the official opening. 

The evening was filled with performances from students and staff, in addition to Mark Chadwick and Rev Hammer from The Levellers, who proceeded to smash a guitar in celebration! 

The Academy will be holding their end of term gigs later this month and are also taking auditions for 2016 study places! Please contact southampton@academyofmusic.ac.uk for more information.
