An exciting future for Havant Sixth Form and South Downs Colleges

We are in the process of developing an exciting partnership between South Downs College and Havant Sixth Form College that is planned to see us merge in August 2017.

Our vision is to create an outstanding further education provider to meet the needs of our future students by building upon our existing strengths.

  • Double the expertise – learning with leading subject and industry professionals
  • Twice the choice – over 150 courses, 80 partnerships with universities and vibrant links with businesses
  • Dual campus – designed to raise your aspirations and meet your learning and lifestyle choices
  • Digital innovation – learning through two pioneering Academies: Google and Microsoft

We would like to reinforce the message to students commencing in September 2017, that we will honour all available courses and programmes for the duration of study at their chosen campus. Extra to this, students will be able to access both campuses for enrichment, to use the facilities and to relax and socialise.

Together we can create the ultimate student journey, as well as growth in business and community partnerships, encompassing the right courses and programmes, lifestyle and employability opportunities to guide our students through their studies to reach their aspirational goals.

Mike Gaston, Principal and CEO of South Downs College, and interim Principal of Havant Sixth Form College: “I am excited at the prospect of the new College that we are in the process of creating. Bringing together Havant Sixth Form College and South Downs College will enable us to offer the highest quality educational experience across a very broad curriculum range and it means that we will be able to deliver the skills that are needed by the communities we serve and to benefit our local economy.”
