“Havant Sixth Form College prides itself on its record of outstanding results and excellent teaching.”

For over 50 years, we have been successfully preparing students for progression on to prestigious universities and employment.

In this most recent report, Ofsted has given full recognition of the high expectations we have for our students and our ambitions for the future of the College. Our success is due to the excellent teaching staff, each of whom are committed to helping students get the grades they are capable of and deserve. We really do everything possible to help students fulfil their ambitions, through providing a huge range of courses, superb teaching and excellent facilities.

We are very proud that Ofsted has recognised that our academic success is underpinned by our excellent pastoral, academic and careers support which provides our students with all they need to achieve and progress.

“All staff have high expectations of learners and work collaboratively with them to enable them to succeed. Learners enjoy their learning, behave very well and demonstrate good levels of respect for others ideas and views and for their teachers.” Ofsted Report, December 2015

The Student Voice Conference

The Conference is held twice a year to discuss all areas of the College directly with students. Student voice is at the heart of everything we do. We listen to our students and take action to ensure the very best learning experience. Here are some examples of our commitment:

You said… more feedback on coursework. We did... we now use Google Classroom and Google Forms to provide detailed feedback to individual students.

You said... more varied resources needed...but please do not detract from conventional methods. We did... we now use embedded YouTube videos, structured resources on Moodle & more varied use of Google Classroom to engage students.

You said... content too heavy in some subjects. We did... embedded more training for teachers on flipped learning to ensure students work on higher level skills in the classroom and knowledge components at home in advance of lessons.

You said... want connection to two devices via College wifi. We did... made this happen!
