A college in St Albans has celebrated the launch of its new name and expansion to a second campus.

Over 60 people, including St Albans Mayor Cllr Salih Gaygusuz, attended a recent event held by St Albans Independent College.

Formerly St Albans Tutors, the institution was founded in Beaconsfield Road in the city nearly three decades ago.

One of its principals, Elvis Cotena, said that it had grown over the years, and now offered students one and two year A-level and GCSE courses in over 25 subjects.

While still based in London Road, a second campus will open at Victoria Street.

Elvis said that the college would continue to support local students who were not full time, via private tuition, and it was also an exam centre for independent pupils wishing to sit public exams.

He added that the college had, over the years, “helped thousands of local students gain excellent A-level and GCSE grades, and get into their chosen university.”
