Established in 1922, London South Collegiate Institute has long been recognized by generations of South Londoners as a school which provides an education of the highest standards, that is second to none in Canada. Providing a range of programs which nurture Citizenship, Scholarship, Leadership and Athletic Participation. London South Collegiate Institute has sent thousands of students to universities across this continent, to community colleges country-wide and into Canada's workforce.



School Organization

We have just over 780 students enrolled, 53 classroom teachers supported by guidance counsellors, a teacher-librarian, and two special education teachers for 2022-2022.




The purpose of London South Collegiate Institute is to provide each of its students with the opportunities, guidance and support to develop the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes necessary for a successful and fulfilling life in the twenty-first century. Our School Goal is to create a "Caring Learning Community" that is safe for students to develop to their full potential. 



Co-instructional Activities

A committed and devoted staff, in concert with members of the community, provide a host of extra-curricular activities providing students with opportunity to participate in a plethora of sports and a huge variety of clubs and organizations.



Noteworthy Items

The annual Commencement Exercises are the most emblematic of the school itself and the high regard in which this institution is held by the community. Throughout the year students in the Arts delight audiences with their Art displays, Dance recitals, Drama productions and Music concerts. The Arts are a very important part of the South school community. South Athletics are a force within the Thames Valley District School Board, across the Province, and Canada. In May, 2023 London South Collegiate Institute will hold its 100th Anniversary since South Collegiate began in an Elementary School near Victoria Public School.

Measures of Student Achievement and Success

At Thames Valley, we believe that assessment and evaluation of student achievement are integral parts of the learning process. Information gathered through assessment and evaluation helps teachers to determine students' strengths and weaknesses in their achievement of the curriculum expectations. It also serves to guide teachers in adapting curriculum and instructional approaches to students' needs and in assessing the overall effectiveness of programs and classroom practices. A variety of methods are used to gauge student progress including: teacher observation, classroom tests, projects and other examples of student work.
