Ravensbourne is a world-class digital media and design college. The College can trace its earliest history back to the foundation of the Bromley School of Art in the 1870s. The modern history of the College began in 1962, when Beckenham School of Art and Sidcup School of Art amalgamated with Bromley School of Art to form Ravensbourne College of Art and Design and the new institution relocated to a new site in Bromley Common. In 1975, the bulk of College activities moved to its current site and new purpose-built accommodation in Chislehurst.
Over the last decade, Ravensbourne students have achieved success in many national competitions, such as the Royal Society of Arts Design Awards (RSA), British Design in Art Direction Awards (D&AD), New Designers Awards, Graduate Fashion Week Awards and PROMAX. The College was recognized in 2007 as one of 17 Skillset Media Academies nationally.
Ravensbourne's campus is at Greenwich Peninsula, next door to the O2. Students can enjoy the river, parks and elegant squares, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, and spectacular views across the Thames to Canary Wharf.
