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.
Dr Jan Edrich, Principal, Eastleigh College

We are delighted to have been recognised by The Times Education Awards for the support we provide to students who need to re-sit their GCSEs after leaving school. The excellent results our students achieved last summer include more than twice the national average gaining a maths GCSE, testament to the dedicated team of teachers who use innovative approaches and techniques to inspire our learners.
Young chefs and hospitality students from Eastleigh College were joined by other competitors from training providers across the south to take part in the southern regional heat of an established national competition. The Major Series 2020, which is organised by Major International in conjunction with the Craft Guild of Chefs, saw 50 competitors take over Eastleigh College's three professional kitchens and East Avenue restaurant and work their culinary majic across ten different classes from 'afternoon tea' to 'street food'.
