Kingston upon Hull College of Education was founded in 1913 as the "Hull Municipal Training College".[1] The first principal was Miss Helen Todd. 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.
