Mary Ward College of Education, Keyworth by Howard Fisher

Howard’s new book tells the story of the teacher training establishment, founded and operated by the Loreto Sisters, on Nicker Hill in Keyworth (now the site of the British Geological Society). Built in 1968 and opened by Princess Anne in June 1970 it was closed in 1977 due to changes in Government education policy.

The restoration of the Memorial Gates to the Rectory Field at Keyworth was made possible by a donation from the Sisters of Loreto to commemorate their stay in Keyworth between 1968 and 1977.

The book is available from Keyworth Local History Society for £7.00 plus £2.50 package and postage; the best way to get a copy is to access the society website

www.keyworthhistory.org.uk

and then navigate your way through Society Activities to Contacts  where you can then use the contacts form at the bottom of the page to make an enquiry about obtaining a copy of the book.

    Was Mary Ward college based at Egham Surrey from 1967 until 1968? I was a student at Shoreditch College in 1967 until 1970 and recall female students visiting Shoreditch for part of their course.
