There has been an educational establishment on our Wandsworth site in south west London for more than 100 years.
It was founded in 1895, funded by a tax on whiskey! Students had to pay what was then a substantial fee of £1 a term for day classes. There were around 500 students studying there, a large number for those times.
1910-11 College regulations stated that "...each boy must wear the school cap or straw hat; he must also provide himself with a satchel, gymnasium shoes and a swimming costume." Apparently, the caps came in different colours depending on what "House" the student belonged to and, according to one student in 1930, the colours used to run in the rain, staining the students' faces blue, red, green or yellow.
In need of help? Come to one of our Advice Centres to talk to welfare, education and careers advisers, counsellors and the work experience team. All our advice services are available to you if you're a current student at South Thames. If you're not a student, you can still get education advice. All advice is free.
We have two Advice Centres - one at Merton and one at Wandsworth. Ask about advice at the reception or Advice Centre at your campus.
