History

Boston College opened its door to students in September 1964 offering just seven courses.

16 year old Miss Thesca Sudlow from Quadring was the College's first student. Thesca enrolled onto the Domestic Science course after finishing her then CSEs at Thomas Cowley Secondary School, where the College still welcome many students from today.

In 1964 the College's courses mainly consisted of A levels, CSEs, Secretarial and Clerical courses and Domestic Science courses, where subjects such as Housekeeping and Cookery were studied.

It has now been over 50 years since the College first opened its door and it continues to provide high quality Further Education and Apprenticeships, with many courses such as Music and A levels having been offered since the first day.

Alongside the change in courses offered, the College has also had a vast development in the equipment, facilities and buildings since 1964. Someone who has seen all of the change at Boston College is Janet Hemmant, whose relationship with the College started back in 1971 when she studied on a part time Public Administration course.
