Southport College (previously known as Southport Technical College) is a further education college located in Southport, Merseyside, England.[1]


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.[2]

The college today[edit]

Southport College offers a range of courses to students from Southport and the surrounding area. These courses include Diplomas, NVQs, BTECs and Access courses. In addition, Southport College offers some higher education courses in conjunction with the University of Central Lancashire and the University of Chester.[3]
