  • Description

    "One of the earliest links in the history of education in this district was severed by the closing of Bedlington Colliery Council School in January 1941. The original building which was opened in 1856 as a Church of England School consisted of only two rooms.....In 1910 the scholars in the two departments totaled more than 600, and owing to it’s overcrowded condition Northumberland Education Committee found it necessary to provide a new Council School at Bedlington Station and to divide the village into two educational districts. About 1928, it was handed over to the County Education Committee as a Council School....."
