Built as a Victorian hotel and used by a private school from London during the Second World War.
The building now houses just animal care and management.
Although modernised, no large extensions have been built to the present day.
The college's North Road centre is located near Poole Park and The Civic Centre.
The centre has a common room with a pool table for its social facilities although the nearest canteen and library is at the main Lansdowne.
The Bournemouth and Poole College has recently acquired a farm in Ham Lane, Longham which will offer agricultural courses.
Work has begun at The Bournemouth and Poole college's Lansdowne and North Road sites, where large sections of both campuses are to be demolished and new modern, multi-million pound, high-tech, fully glass-fronted buildings with a much larger student capacity will be built over the next few years.
The North Road Centre is also the home base for courses for students with learning difficulties and disabilities and has an e2e centre.The college operates eight centres in Bournemouth and Poole.The three largest centres are Lansdowne (in Bournemouth), and North Road and Constitution Hill (in Poole).At one time there was an 'Upper Constitution Hill Centre' which has since moved to North Road because it was sold by the college to build a housing estate.For the last 13 years the college has planned to sell off LCH and its Knighton Heath site and for them to move to the North Road site. It was opened in 1919 as Poole Sea Training School and was also used as a Barnardos children's home.
