HSDC is a leading Further and Higher Education College, providing learning across three diverse campuses in Hampshire. Situated within the top 5% most deprived areas in England and within the second POLAR 4 quintile, our student body encompasses some of the most vulnerable and underrepresented groups nationally. Among them, 47% are beneficiaries of the Uni Connect programme, and 22% qualify for free school meals. In the previous year’s cohort, 1151 students applied for higher education, with 200 successfully securing placements at Russell Group universities. Notably, this included nine placements in medicine, veterinary science, and dentistry, along with three admissions to Oxbridge.
Our Alton Campus provides students with an array of diverse A-level and vocational equivalent courses, allowing students to study both simultaneously. The determination of predicted grades is influenced by students’ overall academic performance and meticulously conducted first-year assessments.
Havant Campus proudly serves as an A Level Centre of Excellence, offering a comprehensive selection of over 30 subjects. The standard expectation is that students will take three A levels with the extended project introduced in Year 12. The determination of predicted grades is influenced by students’ overall academic performance and meticulously conducted first-year assessments.
Dedicated to vocational education, our South Downs Campus provides opportunity for students to undertake a variety of level three courses. Students participate in courses such as BTEC, UAL, T-Level, and Access, benefitting from extensive employer input. Predicted grades are based on a mixture of first year assessments, academic and work placement performance, dependent on course structure.
