Primary School


This page relates to Primary and First Schools in the North East of England.

See: list of over 1,000 Schools in North East England.

These pages are intended to celebrate the history, cultural heritage and social aspects of the schools and education in the North East, rather than present school inspection / ranking information (there are plenty of other sites which do that!). That said, the page for each school here includes the "URN" which links to the Gov.uk gateway for information about that school.
