Westminster Kingsway College's School of Hospitality in Vincent Square was formed one hundred years ago when a committee of concerned academics and hospitality representatives, which included Auguste Escoffier and Isidore Salmon, came together to develop a school for professional cookery. The first course to be developed was the Cookery Technical Day School, which was soon to be formulated into the Professional Chef Diploma, which is still going strong today.
The current School of Hospitality provides an outstanding foundation for students seeking success in the hospitality sector of the United Kingdom and the global community.

The School's academic programmes are structured to ensure the development of core competencies and essential professional chef, service and hospitality skills. This is accomplished through an emphasis on student team building, case analyses, extracurricular activities and internships. We have had many highly successful and noted alumni graduate through this College since our doors opened in 1910. Our internationally recognised Professional Chef Diploma and hospitality programmes graduate truly exceptional young men and women, who are well equipped to solve the problems facing the hospitality community.
