    Hi I was wondering if anyone could help. I went to Battle Hill primary school, then went to what was once High Farm Middle school which got burnt down the year after I left. I was the last generation of year 8 to attend the school under that name before it turned into Burnside primary (I think), but my reason for being here is to ask if anyone has any photos of the school itself. I’ve looked for years and never been able to find any. Thank you

    Yes, there was a Mr Lawlor. And then I think a Mrs Nellie Cosgrove. My mum was a teacher there: Mrs Jackson – for quite a few years. I was there in the 1960s.

      Hi Stan
      My name is Phil. I was the year behind you. We met again in the early 70s in the “Hind Pub” Cramlington and had a few pints together. How are you doing
      I am naturally retired now. I still have a home in Cramlington but am currently living in Thailand. Hope you are healthy and happy

      Hi, I’m Terry and was at St Aidan’s from about ’53 to ’59, then went on to Wallsend Technical School. Possibly I was in the year above you? I think I was in the same year as Alan and Tony. I was good friends with the brothers and with their pals Brian Breeze and Jon Day (playing snooker upstairs in Wallsend Social Club etc).
      Great to touch with the old days

      Please would you know about the old St Columbas school on Hedley street Wallsend. I’m trying to locate the street it was on around the corner which was the playground opposite Gordon Square I believe.

      Kind Regards.
