A spokesman for STC told  PutneySw15.com that the college continues to work closely with the police in this matter and will not tolerate unlawful behaviour. South Thames College has rigorous security systems in place including a security barrier in the entrance, a ‘no ID, no entry’ policy for all staff and students and security guards positioned throughout the campus. The College also works closely with the Police to install security arches at key points in the year.


Theme weeks such as ‘Anti Bullying’ and ‘Staying Safe’ Week are organised throughout the year to educate students on important issues. Counsellors are available for students to talk to about any personal issues they might have, and trained Youth Workers work with our students to reinforce positive behaviour and educate them regarding the consequences of crime.


Principal Sue Rimmer OBE said
“The safety of our students is of utmost importance.
We continue to review and monitor the effectiveness of our procedures in order to ensure the safety of both our learners and our staff."
