Bacon's College is a co-educational secondary school and sixth form located in Rotherhithe, London, England. It was previously a City Technology College, but officially changed to academy status in 2007.


In 1703, Josiah Bacon, founded the school that became Bacon's College.

Founded in 1703 by Josiah Bacon, a fellmonger, its first location was above the porch of St Mary Magdalen, Bermondsey, as Bacon's School. It was relocated to nearby Grange Road in 1860. As part of the development of Docklands area of Rotherhithe it became a CTC in a completely new campus. The college enjoyed its tercentenary in 2003, and held a grand Founder's Day service in St Paul's Cathedral to celebrate the event. Normally its Founder's Day service is held at Southwark Cathedral.
