SPARSHOLT College has been crowned king of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and YouTube.

The college officially has the best social media presence of any college in the UK, after taking top honours in the Edurank Awards.

The awards, which saw the college win best social media performance of the year and Best Instagram Performance, recognise and celebrate the success of social media marketing across the education sector.

The College’s social media platforms are managed by Meg Bullock, Digital Marketing Officer.

Ms Bullock said: "We are delighted to receive this award and industry recognition. It may look easy – a beautiful, 400-acre campus in the Hampshire countryside with 200 species of animals on site is a great resource. But it’s the images captured by students that give a real insight into college life."
