Kingston University Archives Digital Collections

About this collection

Photographs from Gipsy Hill Teacher Training College.  Gipsy Hill was founded in 1917 at Gipsy Hill in South London to train teachers, particularly for nursery aged children.  Its first principal was Lilian de Lissa.  The College remained at Gipsy Hill until the Second World War, when it was evacuated first to Brighton and then to a location near Halifax.  In 1946, having outgrown its former home in Gipsy Hill, the College moved into buildings in Kingston Hill.  In 1975 the College became part of Kingston Polytechnic.  Kingston University continues to have a School of Education to this day, and the former Gipsy Hill site is now Kingston Hill campus.

We have added the names of individuals and places depicted in the photographs where we know them- however some of these details have been lost over time.  If you can identify any individuals or places in a particular photograph please let us know by adding a comment to that photographs description.

If you would like to reproduce any of the images, or have any questions, please let us know at archives@kingston.ac.uk
