Why Highbury? There are plenty of reasons why we should be your College of choice...

We run a fantastic range of study programmes from our four campuses in and around Portsmouth, with fabulous facilities, expert staff, an extensive support network, and great transport links.

In 2011 the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) judged Highbury to be a Grade 1 outstanding College.

Our student success rates 2013/14 make us the top performing college in Hampshire and the IoW (13/14 National CL Success Rates, published by the Data Service). We outperform colleges, both general further education and sixth form in Hampshire and the IoW. Our students continue to do extremely well in national qualifications, with our student success rates remaining in the top 10% of colleges in England.

With over 50 years of experience, we boast a long and proud tradition of both academic and professional programmes, together with close industry links to ensure that the ever-changing needs of employers in the area are met. 

For 2016 we're introducing Applied Generals, combining academic with more practical-based learning so students have the right skill-sets to stand them in good stead for entering the jobs market.

We’re also now offering Level 3 OCR Cambridge Technicals in Engineering.The qualification has been specially designed for learners aged 16-19 wanting to gain thorough knowledge, understanding and competencies for the engineering sector. Assessed by a combination of written exams and assignments, they attract UCAS points for university entry.
