Well I'm not happy about that.

I thought Southwark College has been very poor for years, so it might not be a bad thing? I would certainly not advise students to go there. Ofsted may not be perfect, but consistently being judged 4 (inadequate) might just mean it was beyond repair.

I think the merger is a good idea (for all the reason you give), just not happy I'll have to live opposite Lewisham college!

Yes. That's a serious concern.

...if you press it, they will come.

Don't worry, the next education reform will come and it will be called South London Free University.

In fact, how about Central Lewisham And Southwark Special Interests College?

Classic beats SLFU of course. Should we write to them?

It's a bit of a shame. I did a few courses at Southwark and most were very good, particularly the ones in programming and languages. I only stopped going there because they stopped offering the courses I wanted to do.

How do you feel about living opposite LeSoCo?

What's the problem? Your area being confused with Lewisham?

Personally, I've always thought it was a dark day when the Leicester College of Professional Studies set up in Borough ;)
