School history

The school first opened in 1957, founded by Hugh Christie,[2] with Mr Roy Howard as the head teacher under the name "Hugh Christie Comprehensive." It was originally a one-building school in Norwich Avenue. Between the 1960s and 1994, it was located at two neighbouring sites, Norwich Avenue and White Cottage Road. The school's motto was "Whose I am I Serve".

In 1994 the school was re-branded as "Hugh Christie Technology College" and became well known for its specialities in Information and Communication Technology. A new logo and new uniform were subsequently introduced. The moto changed to "Learning to succeed".

In March 2006, the school began an extensive rebuilding project, which was completed in September 2007, allowing the school to be located on a single site, White Cottage Road. An updated logo and uniform were also introduced.

An all-weather playing field has recently been completed.

Hugh Christie is also home to the Tonbridge Tennis Club.
