Abstract

The evacuation of civilians during World War Two Britain included the relocation not only of school children and teachers, but of whole schools and, in some instances, of teacher training colleges. This paper examines the evacuation of Avery Hill College, a leading teacher training college, from London to Huddersfield between 1941 and 1946. Focusing on issues of gender and community, it provides an account of the circumstances of the move, institutional relations and resources, the social milieu of war-time Huddersfield, the challenges arising from evacuation, the responses of staff
and trainees, and the broader institutional and teacher education policy transitions that ensued.
