Southport Technical College opened in 1935. This institution brought together a number of technical courses which had been offered throughout Southport (then part of Lancashire) since 1887. In 1938 Southport School of Arts and Crafts was founded. The two institutions were amalgamated in 1989 to form Southport College.
