Headteacher’s Welcome

Krista Dawkins

Krista Dawkins – Head Teacher

As the Head Teacher of this over-subscribed College, I would very much like to welcome you to our, and hopefully your, College. Crestwood continues to develop rapidly. I am extremely proud of what has been achieved and excited by how far we have come on our journey. We have been graded by Ofsted as good with outstanding features and described as a good and vibrant school where students enjoy learning. Crestwood is a highly successful, innovative and personal Community College. Due to our small size we pride ourselves on the close relationships we have made with students and parents. We help all learners achieve their potential and better their life chances. We have the Gold Award for Extended Services, the Gold Award for Professional Development and the Gold Award for Investors in People.

Our College is a place of learning and inspiration for all our learners. It provides opportunity and challenge. We are determined and relentless as we strive for the best for our young people.

We are praised for our innovative and exciting curriculum. We develop students’ knowledge and skills to help them achieve and have high aspirations. We work closely with our partner schools in Eastleigh to provide diversity in learning.

As a Community College our students care for and respect others. They develop self-worth, self-respect and self-discipline. Student Voice drives much of our improvement and we work with schools outside of Eastleigh, developing their practice in this area.

“It’s not about who you are or where you’ve come from, it’s about who you want to be and where you want to go.”

Crestwood College is a learning centre for all our community. We boast superb facilities including: a sports hall, fitness suite, performing area, catering room, multi-use games area and astroturf. Our community are engaged with our College and we work in partnership to provide opportunities for all.

This website cannot tell you all that we do. We are a College with a can-do attitude and a can do more culture. We never compromise on providing high quality education and care for all our learners. It is worth visiting so that you can experience the energy and enthusiasm for learning the College creates.
