Zany Zebras comes to Itchen!



Marwell Zoo has launched a brand new project called Zany Zebras, and Itchen Sixth Form College are one of the many businesses and institutions which have rushed to join the ‘stampede’, as Marwell has dubbed the organisations.
Our Life Skills students will get the chance to design and paint a zebra sculpture in a unique and creative way. Once completed, the zebras of all the organisations taking part will be scattered around Southampton city centre throughout the summer of 2016 for members of the public to enjoy.
Rose Fudio, one of the co-ordinators of Itchen’s Zany Zebra, said, ‘Participating in Marwell’s Zany Zebras project is a great opportunity for the Art students as it will provide them with a well-deserved sense of pride and achievement for themselves and for Itchen College’.
To begin preparing for the project, our students started work on their own small wooden zebras, on which they would plan their designs. The students also visited Marwell Zoo, where they had the chance to see Gilbert, Marwell’s own Zany Zebra.
We look forward to welcoming our Zany Zebra to Itchen, and seeing the incredible work our students will put into designing and painting the sculpture.

Results Day 2015 PDF Print Email


On Thursday 13th August, many excited and nervous students came back to Itchen to collect their final A Level results. Many were thrilled as they opened their envelopes, getting the grades they wanted, and being rewarded for all their hard work during their time at the College.

 Many students needed the grades to go on to Higher Education, whilst some were keen to begin their careers and go into apprenticeships and employment.  Deputy Principal Vanessa Cass said that the results were “one of the best on record” for the college, and credited the hard work of the students and their teachers who go “well beyond what is expected of them”.

Principal Barry Hicks began the event by crediting the hard work of the teaching staff, as well as the achievements of the Academy of Sport and Uniformed Public Services. Looking to the future, he remains confident that the Creative Arts Academy, launching in October, will be just as successful.
