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.
Around 70 students, aged between 16-21, all with learning disablities and studying on full-time courses at the College, presented a lively evening of dance, theatre, song and arts against a variety of popular classics, including the Kaiser Chiefs 'I predicts a riot', 'Grease lightnin' and 'Singing in the rain'. The show included a range of dance styles such as contemporary, jass, street, dance-drama, slapstick, mime and freestyle.
Amy Barnes, who was previously on one of the Supported Learning courses and now studies the Skills for Employment course, made a guest performance in the show. Amy commented: "I loved taking part in it! I've done the show many times before it's always great fun. The staff are so good at organising everyone and working in teams is great fun."
Supported Learning Manager, Sharon Priest, said: "The students have worked really hard since the rehearsals started back in November. They have been fully involved in all aspects of the show, from Choreography, singing, dancing, improvisation, filming, artwork and catering. All their effort has paid off - their performances have been fantastic and I am so proud of them."
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.
