137 years of Teacher Training in Salisbury Close

Saturday, March 19, 2011 to Sunday, May 8, 2011

Booking: No booking required.
Cost: Normal admission charges apply.

This year is the 200th anniversary of the National Society which was set up to found Church of England schools and to train teachers for them.  The Society also established its own colleges and the College of Sarum St Michael, based in The King's House from 1841-1978, was one of the earliest.

Former students have put together an exhibition of photographs from the museum archives to illustrate the history of the college. From the strict discipline and spartan austerity of Victorian England to the comfortable study bedrooms and rag weeks of the 1970s, staff and students who lived and worked here are brought to life through stunning photographs accompanied by vivid reminiscences and descriptions.
