Kingston upon Hull College of Education

Kingston upon Hull College of Education was founded in 1913 as the "Hull Municipal Training College".[1] The college had numerous name changes until September 1976 when it merged with the Hull College of Higher Education,[2] which ultimately formed part of the University of Lincoln. The stimulus for the formation of the college was in response to a shortage of certified teachers in the city's schools.[3] The college-trained teachers and educationalists for the city and beyond followed an ethos which was primarily set by Cyril Bibby, principal between 1959 and 1977. The college's first principal was Helen Todd.
