Reference Name SR/627

Records of Lincoln St. Martin's First School. The school was first opened in Hungate on 13 January 1868 as Lincoln St. Martin's Parochial School, with separate schools for Infants and Mixed. On 11 January 1869 the boys moved into their own premises, resulting in the creation of a Girls' School and a Boys' School [see SR/626]. The Boys' School moved to new premises in Beaumont Fee in 1896, leaving the Girls' and Infants' Schools at the Hungate premises. The Infants' and Girls' Schools closed in October 1929, and re-opened on 5 November as a Junior Girls' and Infants' School. Girls over the age of 11 were transferred to the premises of the newly closed Spring Hill Council School [see SR/651 and LC Educ/1/13/1.], which became Spring Hill Girls' School, and the pupils from Spring Hill were admitted to St. Martin's. The school became a Controlled School in 1952 and was re-named St. Martin's CE Controlled Primary School. From 1 September 1971 the school was re-organised for children up to the age of 8 instead of 11, and re-named St. Martin's First School. Children over 8 were transferred to St. Faith's Middle School. In September 1978 the school was moved into the nearby premises of the Spring Hill Music Centre because of the unsatisfactory condition of the Hungate premises. The school was finally closed on 18 July 1984, with the children transferred to St. Faith's Infants' School and Nursery, [SR/617] and St. Faith & St. Martin's Middle School.
