St Charles Catholic Sixth Form College is a Roman Catholic sixth form college located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, in Central London, England. It was originally Cardinal Manning Boys School, founded in 1955 and became St Charles Catholic Sixth Form College in 1990 following a reorganisation of the Catholic education system within the Archdiocese.[1]

The college offers a range of courses for students graduating from local schools in the surrounding area. These courses include GCSEs, A Levels and BTECs.

Murder of Sofyen Belamouadden[edit]

In March 2010, a group of St Charles pupils and their associates armed with knives, batons and a samurai sword chased down and murdered 15-year-old Sofyen Belamouadden in front of Victoria Station.[2] Sixteen students were convicted of offenses relating to the killing, including three convicted of murder and conspiracy to cause GBH; four for manslaughter and conspiracy to cause GBH; two for conspiracy to cause GBH and Violent Disorder and seven for Violent Disorder,[3] in the largest ever use of Joint Enterprise murder prosecution under the UK legal system[4]
