Canterbury Christ Church College (CCCC) was founded in 1962 by the Church of England in order to meet the needs of church schools at a time of teacher shortage. Classes were originally held in the priory next to St Martin's Church, a building which has seen many uses including the private residence of a Bishop of Dover and also the residence for the principal of CCCC. The founding principal was the Revd Frederic Mason.
