Westminster Kingsway College
Westminster Kingsway College was founded in September 2000 following the merger of Westminster College and Kingsway College, which brought together four centres from two London boroughs, Camden and Westminster. Today it is one of the largest Further Education colleges in the UK with approximately 14,000 students across all age groups and offers a wide range of further, adult and higher education programmes as well as a school link provision.
In 2016, the college merged with City and Islington College to form Capital City College Group; in late 2017, the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London joined, making the group one of the largest colleges in the UK.
