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.
Eastleigh College and Southampton City College have received news that our request for funding from the Government to support the planned merger has not been approved.
Whilst this decision is disappointing for both parties, it will not impact either college’s mission to continue delivering quality educational outcomes.
We put our students at the heart of all we do and will continue to do so as we move forward. We would like to reassure students, staff and parents that this decision will not affect the delivery of any of our courses and the Government has assured us it is committed to ensuring further education provision in Southampton.

Following guidance received today from the Department for Education and Ofqual, we can provided reassurance to students who were due to sit GCSEs at Eastleigh College this summer.
Eastleigh College is delighted to announce that following the release of national government data, it has ranked 1st in Hampshire and 10th nationally against all other 6th form and further education colleges for its student achievement rates.
