The South Thames Foundation School was established in 2007 following the merger of the former South East Thames and South West Thames Foundation Schools. It is a collaboration between HEE Kent, Surrey and Sussex (KSS), HEE South London, GKT School of Medical Education, King’s College, London, St George’s University of London and Brighton and Sussex Medical School. 

The Kent, Surrey and Sussex Foundation School is being established from August 2023 as part of the uncoupling of the South Thames Foundation School from its London programmes.  The KSS Foundation School covers a large geographical area with a range of locations and types of hospital and community experience.  Our trusts all provide excellent foundation training programmes which meet curricular requirements.
