It has recently changed it's name from Thanet College and completed a rebranding exercise in August 2012. The College, at its current site, has grown over the years but was originally based in the grade II listed ‘Yarrow' building* - a former home for ‘Convalescent Children Of The Better Class'. During the first and second world war the building became a military hospital and suffered considerable damage caused by enemy action, the obvious target being the bridge in Ramsgate Road spanning the London, Chatham and Dover Railway. During the 1950s enormous progress was made in medicine. Medication for a short period could achieve better results than long periods of convalescence in homes such as Yarrow. The home was taken over by Kent County Council in the 1960's when it became a Technical Training School. In 1949 Thanet Technical College was operating from its site in Ramsgate and comprised of Catering and Commerce. During the late 60s the College took over the Technical Training School at Broadstairs and built a brand new Catering block in 1969. Staff moved over to the new site in 1970 and the College flourished going on to become a Centre of Vocational Excellence for Catering.
