  History  
 
Allen Tony22/04/2010Thames Nautical Training College was expanded and the Admiralty provided the college with HMS Frederick William (originally laid down as Royal Sovereign), a line-of-battle ship of 86 guns with screw propulsion. She was renamed Worcester and refitted in the Victoria Docks before being brought to Greenhithe in 1876. About this time the name of the school was changed to the Incorporated Thames Nautical Training College, HMS Worcester (ITNTC).FURTHER HISTORYHMS Royal Sovereign was to have been a 110-gun first-rate.

She was ordered in 1833, renamed HMS Royal Frederick in 1839, then HMS Frederick William in 1860, before being launched later that year. She became a training ship named Worcester in 1876, was sold in 1948 and foundered that year.
