The Royal Normal College and Academy for the Blind was established in the 19th century. The college moved to Shropshire from London in 1940 because of the war. In 1970 the name was changed to the Royal National College for the Blind. In 1978 it was moved to its current home in Hereford at a former teacher training college site. The co-educational college for blind and partially sighted students over the age of 16 provides accommodation for students and offers vocational as well as traditional subjects with the focus on equipping students for employment.
The college is a registered charity and the Patron is Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales. It has Royal vice-patrons and a Board of Governors. For the period covered by this collection the college was organised with regular meetings of the General Purposes Committee, the Board of Governors, the Finance Committee and Education Committee.
