Former Allendale First School


Allendale First School closed in August 2013 when Allendale and the wider area switched from a three-tier to a two-tier education system. The children transfered to Allendale Primary School. The old school building here was originally built as a Board School in 1879; it is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.

"The school was built as a Board School for the Allendale and West Allen School Board in 1879 for two hundred pupils. It was later enlarged, its last adaptation and remodelling being in 1974-75, when it changed from a County Primary to a County First School. Originally an all age school, it was re-organised for juniors and infants only, from 1 September 1960 when older pupils were transferred to the new Allendale Secondary School. In 1974 with its change of status, older pupils were again transferred to Allendale Middle (former Secondary) School." (Northumberland Archives)
