    Why Move to Eastleigh?

    Advantageously Eastleigh is situated between the two cities of Southampton and Winchester in the county of Hampshire. Eastleigh started life as a Saxon village with the earliest record of existence dating back to 932 A.D. Remaining a small village for many years, everything changed in 1838.

    The London and Southwestern Railway Company built a line running through the village triggering tremendous growth in the area. By the late 1900s, Eastleigh had grown substantially both in social and economic terms. Arguably the town is most well known for being the birthplace of the Spitfire aircraft used by the Royal Air Force during the Second World War.

    Both the railway and Southampton airport (built-in 1929) have had a massive impact on the town and continue to do so to this day. The airport handles more than 2,000,000 passengers annually and is one of the country’s fastest-growing airports, recently voted the best regional airport in Europe. With lots of green areas are available for locals to enjoy which include Fleming Park Parkland and Lakeside Country Park.

    The town lies alongside the River Itchen, one of England’s premier chalk streams for fly fishing and a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. Eastleigh’s two neighbouring cities offer a great variety of leisure opportunities as well as excellent higher education provision. In terms of transportation, Eastleigh is only minutes away from the busy M27 and M3.

    Whilst Eastleigh and Parkway stations offer access to towns and cities up and down the country as well as London Waterloo a journey of an hour and 12 minutes. As the town has increased in population so has the construction of new homes to cater for the influx. New schools, expansion of its FE college and all sorts of other initiatives have contributed to an improved, popular and still growing vibrant town.

    Eastleigh Schools & Education

    A host of high performing primaries serves Eastleigh. Of the closest 23 state-funded schools, 15 have been rated by Ofsted as being “good” and 6 “outstanding”.

    Shakespeare Infant School, St Francis Church of England Primary School, Hiltingbury Infant & Junior Schools and Knightwood Primary School and Lakeside Special School were all awarded the highest standard of “outstanding” following their most recent inspections.

    A popular secondary choice is the highly regarded Thornden School. It has an impressive GCSE pass rate of 87%, higher than the pass rate for Hampshire as a whole.

    Two further education colleges are situated in the town: Barton Peveril Sixth Form College and Eastleigh College, both too have excellent reputations.

    The latter focuses on vocational courses whilst Barton is more academic and focuses on preparing students for life after college, including Higher Education. Students do not have to travel far to attend University.

    Both nearby Southampton and Winchester are home to superb higher education establishments, and each offers its students a fantastic range of courses across a host of subjects.
