Provider overview

South Thames Colleges Group (STCG) is a large general further education college, formed in August 2017 by the merger of Carshalton, Kingston and South Thames colleges. The college has sites in the boroughs of Kingston, Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth, all with excellent commuter links across London and Surrey.
