_pml6896Carshalton College has announced plans to merge with Kingston College and South Thames College

In a statement on its website it says:

“We are pleased to announce plans to merge with Kingston College and South Thames College during 2017 to create an exemplary new college for South West London.

“It is the intention that all three colleges will continue to have a big presence in their own communities and we would like to reassure you that we anticipate this will not affect the course you are currently studying or applying for.

“This decision reflects the partnership work already in place between the three colleges and will maximise the opportunities available to students, increasing the quality of courses offered and the links established with employers, universities and local communities.

“As part of the merger process there will be a consultation period where we will welcome feedback on our proposal.”
