The Wood Street campus of Barnet & Southgate College in Chipping Barnet.

Barnet and Southgate College is a further education college in North London, England. The current college was established in 2011. It has three main campuses and two other learning centres in the London Borough of Barnet and the London Borough of Enfield, predominantly serving students from these areas. Over 14,000 students are enrolled as of 2018.


The college was formed on 1 November 2011 with the merger between Barnet College and Southgate College.

Barnet College was established in 2000 as a merger between the old Barnet College and Hendon College. The Wood Street campus of Barnet College for Further Education had been used for vocational education since the 19th century. Apart from this the college had campuses in Whetstone and North Finchley. Hendon College for Further Education was created in 1973 when the Hendon College of Technology became part of Middlesex Polytechnic, later Middlesex University. As of 1994 the college had four sites, in Colindale, Hendon, Burnt Oak and Mill Hill, with 8,000 enrollments with about 3,000 being full-time study.

Southgate College was founded as Southgate Technical College in 1962, and its buildings on the high street were completed in 1963.


Courses taught include academic qualifications (such as AS and A Levels), to more vocational studies such as City and Guilds courses and BTEC diplomas. The College also runs higher education courses (such as Foundation degrees) in a number of subjects.
