History

Hild Bede was formed in 1975 by the merger of two single-sex teacher training colleges: the College of the Venerable Bede, for men, was founded in 1838 and was associated with the University from 1892; while St Hild's College, for women, was founded in 1858 and was associated with the University from 1896. Graduates of St Hild's were the first female graduates from Durham in 1898. To maintain the history of the two original colleges, males in the College wear the Bede colours of light and dark blue, the colours that the College are more widely known for, whilst female colours are the green and lilac of the original Hild College. For other uses, see Bede (disambiguation). ... Hilda of Whitby (c. ...


Buildings

The college consists of several distinct buildings, including the main Hild building, which is the administrative hub of the college, other accommodation blocks, such as Thorp, Christopher, Bede, and several smaller houses such as Hild Gym, Bede Gym, Charles Stranks, Gables, Manor House, Manor Lodge and Belvedere. Grove and Ravensworth terrace, previously owned by the college, were sold in 2006. At the centre of college is the Caedmon Complex, which contains a dining hall, bar (The Vernon Arms, named punningly after the original Hild Bede Principal, Dr Vernon Armitage), music rooms and the only student-run cinema in Durham, Bede Film Soc [1]. The college is one of two colleges in Durham to have two chapels — The Chapel of St. Hild and The Chapel of the Venerable Bede (University College has the Norman and Tunstall Chapels).


Students

The college is sometimes regarded as having a slightly disproportionate public school intake and an inclination towards competitive sport. Hild Bede's sporting reputation is strong, putting forward several teams in a variety of sports. The college maintains a high level of participation and achievement in all intercollegiate sporting leagues. An independent school in the United Kingdom is a school that relies for all or most of its funding on non-governmental sources. ...


Historically for the first time, as of the 2006–07 season Hild Bede will have three men's football teams in the highest university league, the premiership, which no other college can lay claim to.[1] The men's hockey team currently reside in North East League Division 1, a feat unique among the Durham Colleges; rivals in this league include Durham University 3rd and 4th teams and Newcastle University's 2nd team. The college's affiliated rugby team, Bede RFC, were the university's Floodlit Tournament Champions for 2005–06, defending this title successfully to remain champions in 2006-07 whilst simultaneously capturing the College League title in the same year (2006-07), remaining unbeaten in both competitions In many years of touring the team is yet to be defeated, and include victories over the national teams of Mexico, Estonia and Australia amongst their recent successes.[citation needed] The rugby team also recently wrote, directed and starred in a satirical production entitled Gladiat-Rah, which was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and won five Durham University Drama Awards. Many ex players are seen playing for A Few Good Men Cricket Club. The college has extensive sporting facilities, which aids the high level of sporting attainment.


Each year, several members of the college are awarded the Ann Boynton Award for outstanding contribution to college, for those who embody the spirit of the college whilst maintaining outstanding academic excellence. Winners of the award can be viewed on the college website.
