College House, College Street


College House on College Street in Newcastle was built in 1883 by R.J. Johnson as a new location for Dame Allan's Schools (est. 1705). In more recent times it has housed the Careers Centre of Northumbria University. College House is a Grade II listed building. There is a statue of Dame Allan in the gable end of the adjacent building. 

A heritage plaque on the building states: "Dame Allan's Schools / 1883 - 1935 / Dame Allan's Boys' School (first floor) / and / Girls' School (ground floor) by R J Johnson / Dame Eleanor Allan founded the original schools in 1705 to provide a proper education for 40 poor boys and 20 poor girls from the parishes of St Nicholas and St John".
