St Vincent College is the sixth form college serving Gosport, Fareham and surrounding areas of south east Hampshire. The College provides a full range of A and AS levels, GCSEs, AVCEs, NVQs, BTEC First and Nationals, City & Guilds and Childcare courses for students aged 16 or above.
The college provides for around 1,100 full time students and a far larger number of adult learners in a wide range of vocational and non-vocational courses.
St Vincent College opened in 1987 as Gosport Sixth Form College as part of the reorganisation of secondary education in the town. Initially the college shared the site with the St Vincent secondary school, but when its final Year 11 cohort left in 1990, the present title was adopted. St Vincent School opened in 1975, but prior to that the site has a long and proud historic link with the town of Gosport.
Until the late 1960s HMS St Vincent was a naval training school and until 1923 the Royal Marines used the site as a barracks.
