History of Constitution Hill

It was opened in 1919 as Poole Sea Training School and was also used as a Barnardos children's home. As a college it has been modernised with the library being built in 1997.

The Upper Constitution Hill site, was known as Shaftesbury House. A high level complex of buildings contained the classrooms, while below was a building used for the technology classes for practical sessions, such as plumbing and light engineering. From 1967- 1971 the college was used by CEGB apprentices attending from the Poole Power Station Instrument Training School on 'block release' to college (month and month about training school/college). During this time a Mr Davies was Principal of the Shaftsbury House. Students followed City and Guilds Instrument Craft Practise course 309 and this changed in 1969 to Industrial Measurement and Control Technicians Certificate course 310 of City and Guilds.

At one time there was an 'Upper Constitution Hill Centre' which has since moved to North Road because it was sold by the college to build a housing estate. For the last 13 years the college has planned to sell off LCH and its Knighton Heath site and for them to move to the North Road site. However funding is the problem.

Famous quotes containing the words history of, hill, history and/or constitution:

    The history of medicine is the history of the unusual.
    Robert M. Fresco, and Jack Arnold. Prof. Gerald Deemer (Leo G. Carroll)

    Mahomet made the people believe that he would call a hill to him, and from the top of it offer up his prayers for the observers of the Law. The people assembled; Mahomet called the hill to come to him again and again; and when the hill stood still, he was never a whit abashed, but said, If the hill will not come to Mahomet, Mahomet will go to the hill.
    Francis Bacon (1561–1626)

    The myth of independence from the mother is abandoned in mid- life as women learn new routes around the mother—both the mother without and the mother within. A mid-life daughter may reengage with a mother or put new controls on care and set limits to love. But whatever she does, her child’s history is never finished.
    Terri Apter (20th century)

    Without the Constitution and the Union, we could not have attained the result; but even these, are not the primary cause of our great prosperity. There is something back of these, entwining itself more closely about the human heart. That something, is the principle of “Liberty to all”Mthe principle that clears the path for all—gives hope to all—and, by consequence, enterprize [sic], and industry to all.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
