Fareham College is a further education college situated on a 22-acre (89,000 m2) campus on the western side of the town of Fareham in Hampshire, England.

History

Fareham College was formed in 1984 as a merger between an earlier technical college (Fareham Technical College) on the same site and the sixth-form college at the historic Price's School, a boys' grammar school on Park Lane, (before the latter's site was sold to developers) in 1984, and became the sole state provider of tertiary education in Fareham. Price's School became a sixth form college in 1976.[1] Fareham Grammar School for Girls was on Birdwood Grove, and became Cams Hill School.

Principals

  • Peter Watkins, Principal from 1980-4 of Price’s Sixth Form College (Head from 1974-9 of Chichester High School For Boys and from 1969-74 of King Edward VI Five Ways)
  • Carl Groves (2002-2011), Carl had to step down as principal due to ill health.
  • Nigel Duncan (2012-present)
