Weymouth College is a further education college located in Weymouth, England. The college has over 4,000 students,[1] studying on a wide range of practical and academic courses in many subjects. The college is part of The University of Plymouth Colleges network.

Until recently, the college had a second site on Newstead Road.

There was a private school (Eng: "public school") of the same name from 1862 to 1940 in Weymouth.[2]


Grammar school

This site was opened in 1913 as Weymouth Secondary School, which in 1927 became known as Weymouth Grammar School. In 1939, the school began sharing this site with South Dorset Technical College. In the 1960s, the school moved to new premises in Chickerell Road, leaving the technical college with sole use of the site. The grammar school was co-educational with around 1,050 boys and girls administered by the South Dorset Divisional Executive of Dorset Education Committee.

Merger and formation

1985 saw the creation of the modern Weymouth College, with the merging of the technical college with Weymouth College (the former Weymouth College site became known as the Cranford Avenue campus).

New site

In 2001, the Newstead Road site was sold for housing development, and all students based there were transferred to new facilities at the Cranford Avenue campus, creating the college as it exists today.

Recently,[when?] Weymouth College has expanded provision beyond its traditional curriculum offering. A sports centre and gym facility for public use was opened at the Cranford Avenue site, with the college additionally taking over the operation of the former Weymouth Sports Club site on Dorchester Road, now renamed as Redlands Community Sports Hub.
