Stage two of our Redevelopment is in progress
As part of our £12million development, our Chestnut Avenue campus is currently undergoing transformation in preparation for our new teaching building.
Now that we have completed the first phase of the project and our new training restaurant is up and running, we are keen to get started on the next phase. The buildings at the southern boundary of the campus, where Little Acorns Day Nursery was located previously, have now been demolished and work is underway to clear the area and start on the foundations for the new teaching building.
The new, three-storey teaching block will replace the facilities currently located at our Desborough Road campus, which includes Art, Media and Design and Hair and Beauty. The building will also include a new commercial Hair and Beauty Salon.
Works are planned to be completed by September 2016 ready for the start of the new academic year.
We will keep you updated as the project progresses!
Eastleigh College opens a rapid-turnaround onsite Covid-19 testing centre
Eastleigh College is offering rapid-turnaround lateral flow tests for learners and staff to help in the fight against Covid-19. Lateral flow tests can produce quick results and can be used to identify Covid-19 infection in those without symptoms (asymptomatic). It is hoped that running these tests across the college will result in faster detection of cases for learners and staff without symptoms, and therefore achieve a more effective prevention of infection.

The Prime Minister announced that GCSE and A level exams would not take place this summer, and that vocational examinations would continue as planned. We understand how disappointing and concerning this news is and the College seeks to reassure all learners, parents, guardians and employers that the College will seek to ensure no learner is disadvantaged and that we will work to provide as much information and guidance as possible as soon as information is available to us.
