Mike Gaston, principal of Havant and South Downs College, said: ‘Recent events have marked the start of a bright new future for further education in our area.

‘The merging of Havant Sixth Form College and South Downs College means two campuses, one college, but most importantly, one incredible journey for our students.’

The branding for the partnership was unveiled at a ceremony in June, held at South Downs College.
