This college was housed in what was originally an early-Victorian residential villa called Rockhampton House, situated to the west of the junction of Richville and Oakley Roads in Shirley. It was enlarged and converted to a college in the mid-19th century. In the 1860s it was called Shirley College, and was renamed Alexandra College in 1872. In 1921 it was incorporated into Regent's Park School, which had been built to the north of the college in 1913. The building was eventually demolished in the 1960s.
