Message from Eastleigh College

Support for Year 11 pupils

We recognise that the exam and assessment changes this summer will have caused uncertainty for schools, pupils, their families and future employers. The College is wholly committed to ensuring that no course or apprenticeship applicant will be disadvantaged as a result of the exam and assessment changes and we will work with every individual to ensure transition to College is as smooth as possible.

For those yet to apply or yet to be interviewed, staff will ask to see Year 10 and Year 11 reports, mock results and any GCSE or vocational courses already completed, to inform decisions about all course and apprenticeship offers.

Please note our applications process remains fully operational and interviews will be conducted via phone, or Microsoft Teams. Contact details for any enquiry are available on our website here and applications can be made here.

FSM Food Box Delivery

Dear Parent/Carer,

Please complete the Google Form (link here https://forms.gle/FQkaz2XHChk4opQc6) if you wish to participate in the food parcel scheme delivered from Harvest Fine Foods.

The scheme is for FSM children who are eligible. We feel this is a better way to get food to those children who are entitled, as the food is delivered to the door of your home and you do not need to leave your home. We are hoping deliveries will commence week beginning 6th April for Cherbourg campus parents and week commencing 13th April for Shakespeare campus parents.  Deliveries will be for 2 weeks at a time.

Please complete the form by Thursday 2nd April 2020 at 12 noon at the latest.

If you have any queries, please contact Julia Hughes, Business Manager, at julia.hughes@crestwood.hants.sch.uk
