Carshalton College, Kingston College and South Thames College are pleased to announce they have today published a public consultation outlining their proposal to merge on 1 August 2017.
The merger will bring together the strengths of all three colleges, enhancing opportunities for current and future students and safeguarding the provision of further education to local businesses and communities across south west London.
It provides an opportunity to enhance local provision by combining the expertise and world-class facilities of all three organisations to make a stronger, more resilient college group.
Should a merger go ahead following consultation, it will cause minimal disruption to current students. The College is not changing, it is becoming part of a wider group of colleges which are working together.
The public consultation runs until 18 April and all responses must be received by the closing date. Once the consultation closes the colleges will collate all the responses and the outcome of the consultation will be published in June.
