Eastleigh College student, Jonah Alexander, is overwhelmed to have been accepted at the world-famous Slade School of Fine Art at University College London (UCL). Jonah is currently finishing his Level 3 Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at Eastleigh College, before moving to London in September.
The Slade School of Fine Art makes a significant contribution to contemporary art, on both a national and international basis. Studying at Slade is an honour for any artist and with so many global links to art institutions and organisations, students can expect to make fantastic achievements.
Jonah was thrilled when he found that he had been offered a place, “I felt so happy, I can’t believe this has happened to me. I’m excited to do more oil painting, especially on a larger scale, and possibly also more film photography and film making”.
With no clear career path in mind yet, Jonah is keen to experience as many art forms as possible and keep an open mind about his future.

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'.
