Summer School 1952



Studying at Rockside, 1954-6



Commemoration Weekends, 1955 & 1956



This large group photograph shows the students and staff of Matlock Training College on the lawn of Rockside Hall of Residence. There were no male students at that time and only two male members of staff. Teacher training courses lasted for two years and were not degree courses.

The views from Rockside were spectacular. Amongst the buildings in the background are the rooftops of Wellington Street, the chimney of Paton & Baldwin's and the spire of the Congregational Church (now gone). Riber hillside and the castle are across the valley.
