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!
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'.
