Regents Park Community College is a Mixed Comprehensive School in West Southampton, Hampshire, in the south of England. The most recent Ofsted inspection was on 5-6 November 2014 when the inspectors reported that "This is a good school. The students are making good progress and their achievements are good. It is led impressively by its headteacher, Jonty Archibald, whose vision for and commitment to the students and community is shared with equal enthusiasm by the staff."Ofsted inspection report, visit of 5-6 November 2014

Previously, Regents Park was placed into special measures during the 10-11 July 2013 Ofsted inspection, after being rated 'inadequate' under the reign of former headteacher Sarah Hill. Due to this, Mrs. Hill had to resign her position as headteacher, while Mr. Archibald was drafted in as 'Head of School'. The board of Governors was disbanded and replaced by an IEB (Interim Executive Board), chaired by Ian Fielder.

Regents Park Community College is now a good school and the IEB have elected Jonty Archibald as headteacher. To speak to him over the phone, call the school number and enter extension 224.

As part of Southampton City Council's review of secondary education, called "Learning Futures", the school started accepting boys from September 2008.
