South Thames College is a Further Education college in South West London. It operates two campuses: Wandsworth and Tooting.

The college was inspected by Ofsted in June 2009 and again in May 2012 and was awarded a ‘Good’ rating in both inspections. Ofsted praised the college's rising success rates and the “safe and inclusive environment”, rating the safeguarding and care of their students as 'outstanding'. In 2016, Ofsted stated the college 'required improvement' in six key areas.[1]

John Boyega attended South Thames, graduating in 2011.[2]

As of 2018, South Thames College has merged with Kingston College, Carshalton College and Merton College to form the South Thames Colleges Group.[3]
