Our History

2006 – Where We Begin our Journey

Mont Rose College started its operation from Leyton in early 2006. The Leyton Town Hall, completed in 1882 and designed by John Johnson, was where we began our journey. We aimed to work for the betterment of our communities by offering vocational and English courses within the multicultural town. With the humble beginning of starting from rented rooms in Town Hall, offering English language courses, 7 staff members, and 24 students, we have now grown into three College-owned buildings, more than 800 students, offering degree level courses in 4 different academic fields and round 71 staff members.

Since its inception, Mont Rose College has created a reputable brand for higher education, offering a special learning environment. Mont Rose College is paving its way to providing quality teaching and tailored student support. Passionate and experienced teaching staff have recognition within the industry, and students are taught in small groups, with plenty of social interaction between students and lecturers – providing an outstanding level of support for all our learners.

With a strong ethos for student success and progression, Mont Rose College holds strong connections with academic and professional examining bodies. This ensures quality is delivered from the first day, and students not only walk out with an industry-recognised qualification but transferable skills needed to succeed and secure employment for their future.

As a Higher Education provider, Mont Rose College is committed to lifelong learning, working with an extensive range of student bodies ranging from adult learners to school leavers seeking higher education.

2014 – Opening of Shakespeare House

As part of our strategic planning and commitment, we acquired our first Campus, Shakespeare House in Ilford in 2014 and spent 4 million to develop it according to the students’ needs. We held a grand opening of our Campus attended by several supportive guests such as the Mayor of Redbridge, Redbridge councillors, and many more! Our ribbon-cutting ceremony was such a delightful event in the communities, even raking in 24 articles of press coverage!

2016 – Opening of Churchill House

In 2016, another campus, Churchill House, was acquired, and 4.5 million was spent on its development. This Campus was our first to consist of open plan halls and outdoor space for employability workshops, student events, graduation ceremonies, and our renowned Christmas parties.

2018 – Opening of Mont Rose House

At this point, we had established a partnership with Buckinghamshire New University to expand our curriculum further for the advantage of our students.

To provide our students’ additional facilities and resources, we acquired Mont Rose House in 2018 and we spent 12 million to make it a state of the art campus for our students.

Currently, Mont Rose House has been our powerhouse for admissions, lessons, employability, and more. We hold more than 800 students in total spread across our three different campuses. Our journey began 15 years ago to date, yet we still have so much further to go. Mont Rose College strives to continue providing higher education to the people in our communities.
