|Celebrating 100 Years of Education|
Lunch and drinks reception at local college
This week Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College celebrates 100 years of education in Ealing. In 1913, Ealing County School for Boys opened its doors for the first time to 90 pupils. Today it stands as the home of the College’s Ealing campus, which includes the Institute of Media, and continues to welcome students from across London into a rich educational heritage.
In 1974, the borough of Ealing switched to the comprehensive system when the School became Ealing Green High School. Later, in 1992, the School was taken over by the Ealing Tertiary College. This paved the path to the present day when in 2002 Hammersmith & West London College merged with Ealing Tertiary College to create Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College.
Ealing campus boasts alumni reflecting the different stages of its educational evolution. Among those to have studied inside the campus walls are legendary British tennis player Fred Perry and media mogul Jamal Edwards, founder of SBTV.
To mark the occasion Principal Paula Whittle will host a lunch and drinks reception at the College’s Ealing campus on Friday 13th at 12pm. She said: “This is a moment for everybody who has ever been associated with the College to enjoy. As we think of the past, I am optimistic about what we can achieve in the future. I hope our next 100 years of education in Ealing will do justice to our heritage.”
