The Sholing Technology College, previously known as Sholing Girls' School, is a comprehensive school in east Southampton, Hampshire, in the south of England. The school is for girls and boys aged: 11 to 16 years.

The most recent Ofsted inspection was 5 October 2011.[1] The most recent full report was 5 October 2011 when the school was praised by the inspectors. "This is an effective school that provides students with a good education. This judgement matches the college's own view of itself. The headteacher leads the college well and student achievement is rapidly improving. The college provides good value for money. Student attainment on entry to the college is in line with the national average. By the end of year 9 standards are above average."[2]


The Middle Road school buildings originally housed a boys' school, but this was converted to a girls' school - then called Sholing Middle Road Girls' School - in the years 1910-1912. The buildings were further altered between 1914 and 1920.[3] In 1938 the school was referred to as "Middle Road Senior Girls' School, Sholing" when Southampton Corporation were tendering for an electrical installation to take place there.[4] By 1954, the school was named "Sholing (Middle Road) Secondary Girls' School" and Southampton Town Council were seeking tenders for a constructor to build a new annexe.[5]
