          In 1960, it became a comprehensive school and boy ware accepted namely as joint-attendant students or co-students. The Certificate of Education and The Rural Teacher Training Project began.
          In 1968, the school was renamed The Nakhon Pathom Teacher Training School.
          In 1969, the school moved (from the above address) to 85 Malaiman Road (opposite Wat Mai Pinkliaw) and the course upgraded to be based on the elementary level teacher training project.
In 1970, the school was promoted to Nakhon Pathom Teacher' College, promulgated on 16 January 1970. The Higher Certificate of Education commenced.
          In 1975, the Teachers' Colleges begin to operate in line with the Teachers' Colleges Act, 1975. They encountered many changes particularly in their role and structure, which in one way or another paved their way to becoming more absolute institutes of higher Education. For instance, the Fifth Article of the 1975 Act specified that Teachers' Colleges world, become research institutes and legitimately center the Bachelor's Degree, deliberately promote the instructor / teachers and education personnel's academic standing, preserve and nurture the arts and cultures, and provide the community with academic services.

A demonstration school (housed in Building D3) was founded for secondary-level students, and began with two classes of Matayom I (first-year of high school) offering English Maths. The secondary school was managed simultaneously with the kindergarten school, which had been providing Kindergarten One and Kindergarten Two in a temporary building since 1979.
