St Charles Catholic Sixth Form College is a Roman Catholic sixth form college located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, in Central London, England. It was originally Cardinal Manning Boys School, founded in 1955 and became St Charles Catholic Sixth Form College in 1990 following a reorganisation of the Catholic education system within the Archdiocese.[1][2] It is part of a cluster of Catholic institutions located at St Charles Square which includes Sion Manning Roman Catholic Girls' School, St Charles Primary School, a church and a Carmelite monastery.

The college offers a range of courses for students graduating from local schools in the surrounding area. These courses include GCSEs, A Levels and BTECs.

In 2010, a group of 20 students were charged with murder after the stabbing death of 15-year-old Sofyen Belamouadden. This was the UK’s biggest ever joint prosecution of a gang for a killing. Eight students were convicted[3]. The case was featured on an episode of the UK television program Click for Murder[4].
