Principal of Havering College Maria Thompson:

We have come a long way in seventy years. The College started life as a small community and health centre in post-war Britain where it was addressing the specific needs of the community at that time. Today, we continue to serve our community, but in a very different way. Our vibrant and popular college now offers over 360 courses and welcomes thousands of students each year.
