Weymouth College

Weymouth College is a Further Education college located in Weymouth, England. The college has over 7,000 students, studying on a wide range of practical and academic courses in many different subjects.

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

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).

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.

Weymouth college quickly evolved to become a fairly famous college for the area producing many good results and offering more than just normal college courses.Fact|date=August 2008
