Recommended Posts

Cleveland College of Art & Design (CCAD) or Government School of Art, as it was then called, was first opened in Church Street Atheneum, Hartlepool, in 1874. In 1897, it moved to the top floor of Lauder Street Technical College, where it remained until moving in 1939 to the vacated Church Square School, which was destroyed by fire in 1966.
The College remained there until the building was destroyed by fire in 1966. The new College of Art and Design opened on the same Church Square site in 1968, where it remains to this day – the right School of Art in every sense of the word. The name ‘Hartlepool’ was derived from ‘harts’ (deers or stags), which are symbolized throughout the town and ‘le pool,’ which means by the sea, Moving on to the present day, we refer to CCAD as THE northern school of art.
