Discover what life was like during the 1990s at St. Martin’s College

During the 90s the college saw a period of great expansion.  By 1995 the Lakeland College of Nursing had been taken over and in 1998 St. Martin’s moved into buildings on the former city general and maternity hospital at Fusehill Street Carlisle. Teaching expertise expanded into areas of health, arts, humanities and business.

A building boom ensued in Lancaster with the development of the Sports Centre, Humanities building, Hugh Pollard Lecture Theatre and new accommodation.

In the late 1990s St. Martin's took over the management of Charlotte Mason College in Ambleside and by 1999 the college saw the very first students recruited to the BA QTS primary programme in Tower Hamlets, London.

Ian Edynbry was Principal from 1989 to 1997 when the role was taken over by Chris Carr who would become the last ever principal of the college.
