It also seeks to work with employers to raise skills levels in the workplace.We run teams in just about every sport, and succeed in most of them! Our orchestra puts on concerts at several venues around Hampshire. The college art exhibitions, and drama and dance productions are always well received. In recent years, our students have become more and more involved in raising funds for charities and in community action projects.Whether you are sporting, artistic, shy or outgoing, a natural genius or someone who has to work hard for every mark, you will find others like you at Symonds. But remember the more you put into life at Symonds, the more you will get out.
