Hi there,

I think this site might have been closed in about 1997 or a bit earlier.  Grantham College of Education was one of those consolidated institutes formed Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) in 1994 and moved to their current Tai Po Campus in 1997.

Best Regards,

T

The Grantham Training College was established in 1951 and named after the then Hong Kong Governor, Sir Alexander Grantham. At the beginning, the College used the campus of King's College for teaching but later moved to Gascoigne Road in Kowloon in 1952.

The College specialised in training certified teachers for primary and junior secondary schools, and in the same year, a one year art programme was introduced.

The Grantham Training College was renamed as the Grantham College of Education in October 1967.

In 1994, the Northcote College Education (The Training College established in 1939, renamed in 1940), Grantham College Education (Grantham Training College established in 1951, renamed in 1967), Sir Robert Black College of Education (Third Training College established in 1960, renamed in 1961), Hong Kong Technical Teacher’s College and Institute of Language in Education were amalgamated into The Hong Kong Institute of Education.
