In 1949 the Department of Education and Science determined that, in the first year, the governors of Bretton Hall should recruit about 60 students to study either Art or Music.
Four courses would be available: two of one year's length for older musicians or artists, and two of two years' duration, generally for school leavers.
Due to her earlier course of study and subsequent qualification from the Sheffield College of Art, Heather Carlin was accepted for a one-year course at Bretton Hall.
