Stanmore College is in the London Borough of Harrow and was established as a tertiary college in 1987. In 1993 all colleges in the post-16 sector ceased to be controlled by their local education authorities and Stanmore College became a Corporation funded by the Further Education Funding Council, and since 2001 by the Learning and Skills Council, which has been replaced by successor organisations: the Skills Funding Agency and the Young People’s Learning Agency. The College facilitates learning from Further Education (the Sixth Form) to Part-Time (Courses for Adults) and Employer Training. Its Sixth Form provides education to an average of 1,500 16- to 19-year-old school leavers. Students come from the Borough of Harrow and a wide area beyond including a significant amount from Brent, Hertfordshire and Barnet.


The College offers a range of vocational programmes and A levels. It has links with industry.

Recent years have seen Stanmore College operate with a sharpened focus on five areas, namely:

  • 16- to 18-year-olds
  • adults
  • workplace learning
  • job seekers
  • community learners

Expansion of the College[edit]

The College has a newly refurbished Learning Resources Centre.
