The college was founded in 1863 by a group of prominent local businessmen and industrialists, most of who were associated with the Queen Street Congregational Church. Tettenhall Towers was built by Wolverhampton industrialist Colonel Thomas Thorneycroft as a house for him and his family. The Towers Theatre was originally a ballroom and has springs under the floor to make it a better dancing surface. The stage was built later on for the school when it started. The school was sold by the last member of the Thorneycroft family in 1942. The college’s lower school building was completed in September 2000 and the science department in 2007.
There are some seriously scary things happening at the towers, so spooky that many people dare venture into this building alone. One occurrence being that of a tall dark gentleman, who is dressed in period clothes, he has been seen many times wandering eerily through the spooky long corridors. People have said they have a fear of being pushed over the edge of the stairwell balcony and have often felt the presence of hands on their back. In the cellars of this building lights flickering on and off, knocking sounds and footsteps and shuffling noises have all been experienced.
