City and Islington College has celebrated 20 years of improving education for the local community and beyond.
Special guests joined last week’s cake-cutting ceremony to mark London’s leading Further Education College’s two decades of transforming young people’s learning.
In July 1993, the education centre’s governing body changed its name to City and Islington College, having previously been called Islington Federal College.
Highlights of the past twenty years have included outstanding Ofsted inspections, a visit by the Queen, and the opening of award winning buildings and facilities.
Jack Morris OBE, chair of governors for sixteen of the past twenty years, said: “Our aim, from the outset, was always to make the college the finest Further Education institution in London.

“We have radically improved the quality of teaching and learning, and in turn the results students achieve.”
Principal Frank McLoughlin said: “We were delighted to welcome so many former members of staff, governors and students to the College who have played such an important role in making the College what it is today.”
