Welcome to Protective Services, Law & Criminology

The faculty of Protective Services, Law & Criminology is exciting and diverse in subject content, offering its students a variety of opportunities.

Law and Criminology allow students to take an academic route into the legal professions and higher education. Extra opportunities include links with universities, and trips to the Houses of Parliament, The Supreme Court and Southampton's Law Courts.

Our Uniformed Protective Services Academy provides a realistic environment for those wishing to enter the uniformed protective services after college. The dynamic teaching team have extensive uniformed service experience to draw upon and students regularly go on enrichment trips to compete against other colleges, work with the services and complete extra-curricular qualifications such as the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

It has been an amazing two years, Itchen College has helped me grow into a mature student ready to go to university.
