The History of the London School of Theology

In March 1943, Graham Scroggie was invited to be the director of the college for the duration of the war and to preside over teaching matters. Laing provided "generous financial help", and the council of All Nations College gifted £200. In the autumn of that year, the first lectures and classes were held in Eccleston Hall, which marks "the beginning of the public activities of the college".

By 1944, over 300 students were enrolled, and two years later the number was up to 1,400.

In 1970 the college moved to Northwood on a campus previously occupied by the London College of Divinity (or London School of Divinity), an Anglican institution. The 1990s saw the opening of a new postgraduate center, the Guthrie Centre, which had formerly housed the Centre for Islamic Studies.

In 2004 the name of the college was changed to the London School of Theology.

Academic Highlights

Virtually all of our modules for personal development are designed for beginners. You don’t need to have done any prior study at all. If you’ve any concerns at all then you’ll definitely want to start with the ‘recommended modules’ discussed over the next two pages. But even if all of the others will take you deeper into the subject, they certainly start with a presumption that you’re new to the subject.
