About Us

About Us

Capital City College Group is the largest further education provider in London, and the third largest in the UK, with three colleges – City and Islington College, Westminster Kingsway College and the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London – and a training arm delivering apprenticeships and courses for employers, Capital City College Training. CCCG also helped found Visionnaires, a social enterprise for entrepreneurs, and 01 Founders, a unique coding school.

Our history can be traced back to 1828, when the Grove House School began offering education to residents of Tottenham, noted for its advanced curriculum and refusal to use corporal punishment. The school, now part of the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London, produced a number of well-known alumni, including 11 future UK MPs. In the 1890s, the Westminster Technical Institute was established, offering courses in the building and plumbing trades, carriage-building, and elementary subjects, before opening the UK’s first school of hospitality in 1910. 

This rich history culminated in the group’s formation in 2016, bringing together three colleges with eleven centres across central and north London, working primarily in Islington, Camden, Westminster, Haringey and Enfield, but with students and apprentices coming from across London and the south east.

Today, CCCG’s colleges train over 25,000 students each and every year, equipping them with the academic and vocational skills and knowledge they need to progress into employment or higher education. The group’s diverse alumni include household names such as renowned chefs, Jamie Oliver, Ainsley Harriott and Anthony Worral Thompson, award-winning performer Paloma Faith, actors Jessie Wallace, Zawe Ashton, and Steve McFadden, presenters Maya Jama, Trevor Nelson, and Reggie Yates, and olympians, Lina and Laviai Nielsen.
