Sports & Arts
There’s a lot more to Havant College than just gaining qualifications. The Be Extraordinary and Be Active programmes are designed to give students lots of new opportunities and experiences. For students who enjoy keeping fit, the college offers a range of sports teams for them to join. Whether they want to get to know new people or are looking at competing at the highest level, there are lots of sporting activities to get involved in. Havant College run run a great range of trips and activities throughout the school year and offer clubs and societies to appeal to all and support students in developing their skills outside of the classroom.
Havant College encourages students to become independent adults by taking ownership of their studies and managing their spare time effectively, and this is encouraged by the college’s progressive approach to timetabling. Classes do not start until 10am because academic research shows that teenagers learn better later in the day. Students have 5 hours of teaching time per subject, per week, which is more than any other college in the local area. Staff always devise timetables with student feedback and needs in mind, so study time is scheduled into the day. This gives students who are well-organised the chance to keep evenings free for extra-curricular activities and socialising.
