  • Lambeth College Overview Image


The capital’s service and leisure industries are a driving force behind regeneration on our high streets. Everywhere you look there are new health and fitness centres, gyms, hair and beauty salons, restaurants, bistros and bars.

That is why we have built our very own SW4 Learning Street at the Clapham Centre. This brand new and unique set of facilities includes smart shops and micro-businesses, a restaurant and professional training kitchens, a hair and beauty therapy salon and spa  They aim to simulate the real service and retail experience where students get hands-on experience in running their own business and enterprise and deal with real clients and the general public.

If you are adventurous and enjoy physical activity, we have developed a new provision for uniformed public services and sports and fitness. In uniformed public services you will be trained to develop your fitness and expertise, to give you that competitive edge when entering into a services career. Recently we have seen successful learners from our football academy signed for QPR and West Ham Utd football clubs with many others progressing to careers in personal training, sports coaching and into higher education to study sports science and leisure related subjects.

Student story

Hairdressing student Beverly Williams from Brixton is one of our top Hairdressing students. Beverly was chosen to represent the College in the Wella Xposure finals in Central London.

"To be chosen by the judges as a finalist in this very high profile student hairdressing competition was a real shock.   I was totally overwhelmed when my tutor broke the news to me. My goal in life is to have a nice long career as a hairdresser and stylist.  I would love to have my own business and perhaps, in a few years time, my own high street salon. In the salon all the students get on well and support each other.  There are some great characters and it’s like one big happy family.  The teachers have been great right from the start and are really inspiring.”
