Timothy Hackworth Primary School


Timothy Hackworth Primary School is located on Byerley Road in Shildon. It is a Community school with about 400 pupils aged 2 to 11.[1] The school is named in honour of Timothy Hackworth (1786 - 1850), the famous railway engineer, who lived in Shildon and was the first locomotive superintendent of the Stockton and Darlington Railway. The school itself was built in 1910 to cater the growing population of New Shildon associated with the arrival of the railway. Initially it was called Shildon and East Thickley New Shildon Council Schools and was officially opened by Councillor M. Watson JP, on the 12th of February 1910. In 1925, as part of the school was renamed the Shildon and East Thickley Timothy Hackworth Council School. By 1931 there were 3 schools/departments on the site;  a mixed infants, a mixed juniors and a senior girls school. In July 1976 the senior department was closed and the girls transferred to the new Sunnydale Comprehensive School. The infant and junior schools were amalgamated to become todays Timothy Hackworth Primary School.[2
