Entry under History in Wikipedia states :- 'It was founded in 1926 as Bedlington Secondary School for the areas of Bedlingtonshire, Ashington and Newbiggin, being built next to Bedlington railway station. Subsequently it became Bedlington Grammar School, before turning comprehensive in 1974. It gained Maths and Computing College status in 2009.

I would add - the Secondary Modern School merged with the Grammar School to create the High School. The new build + the old grammar school remained until a new High School was built, on the existing grounds, and opened in 2016.

@Alan Edgar (Eggy1948)Is it me, or are you pulling out all the stops? Churning stuff out so it’s all out there? Is your encyclopaedic knowledge stored safely somewhere; do you have a protégé/acolyte to carry on your knowledge? There’s too much to lose, dear heart, please reassure your fans that the history you have at your fingertips is in some form of parcel which can be “opened in the event of……”, please? xxxxx🌈xxx

I just do what's available each day - normally on what notifications via email is received from Facebook groups and this community group. I just hope we get more members interested in keeping the histiry of the town recorded. The albums have been created over the last 5 years. I do keep copies of the photos that others posted online on my Desk Top PC's as it makes access easier. None of my family were born and bred in Bedlington so it's down to members of this group to carry on updating the albums. We rely on the youngins - so over to you @lilbill15:wave:  

I should add that if I was younger, and fitter, I wouldn't be in the house every night doing this - I would be out on the town:beer:

Haha @Alan Edgar (Eggy1948)! Not as young as that but keen to take up the baton. Thick as a brick and computer semi-illiterate, would need guidance and probably technical support. I now have an iPad plus iPhone, please don’t say I need a computer; however I am prepared to bite the IT bullet if necessary. I think history is what brings us to where we are now and mustn’t be lost otherwise we’ll just keep going around in circles 😁🌈xx

I have to agree Alan,you do a terrific job on this site, stories, pictures etc etc. Very well done mate. Hopefully your health improves. I have never lived in Belington since we moved in 71 after my stint in forces. However,I do get a great of pleasure looking up on gallery and reading what people have put on the site. It brings back some lovely memories which I enjoy and I do miss the quiet and peaceful walks down the woods behind where we lived. Enjoy your weekend. JimR

I agree with every word of that!

I didn't get any 'quote' button when I marked the text this time. I had to quote the lot and erase what I didn't need to repeat. Weird things are happening.
