Our South Downs Campus is the place for technical excellence. We offer a comprehensive range of A Level equivalent courses, higher education courses, apprenticeships and much more. With our excellent facilities and teachers, it’s no surprise that our students progress to amazing success and fantastic careers.
So far this year, 61 Havant and South Downs students have applied to Oxford, Cambridge, Medicine and Veterinary courses.
Recently, our successes include:
In 2019/20, over three-quarters of our Level 3 students achieved high grades in their qualifications and over half achieved the very highest grades (such as triple Distinction*) – these results mean our students progressed to higher education, employment or apprenticeships with great confidence and an even greater chance of future success.
Similarly, our students who retook that GCSE Maths or GCSE English achieved superb results – far higher rates of 9-4 grades than students at colleges nationally.
Three of our students placed at the WorldSkills UK National Finals in 2019, claiming Gold, Silver and Highly Commended awards. They managed to obtain their winning places by competing against more than 500 apprentices and students. Ex – Catering student Bella Skipp won Gold for Confectionery, while ex-Sport students Jake Francis-Chin and Luke Keogh were awarded Silver and Highly Commended for Fitness Trainer: Personal Training.
We love it when our past students get in touch with us and let us know where their careers have taken them and what they have been getting up to.
From appearing in the BBC’s The Greatest Dancer, becoming a Sports Therapist for a Rugby Union team and signing for Scottish Premiership team Hibernian FC, our students have gone on to do amazing things. Read more about our HSDC alumni here.
