West Thames College London

College for 14 -16 year olds in partnership with schools

Specialist Vocational Courses for 14-16 year olds, in partnership with local schools.

West Thames College specialises in vocational courses that give a real insight to the world of work and offers subjects that cannot always be studied at school.

Working in partnership with local schools, we offer access to state of the art equipment, studios and salons for vocational courses aimed at 14-16 year olds.

Working together

We want our young students to succeed and we work closely with schools and parents to ensure this happens.

We provide regular feedback with parents' evenings and progress and attendance reports, so that students, parents and the school are clear about the progress of the student.
