    The original school building was destroyed by fire in 1970. The old school building was replaced with garages and houses and the new school is still within the old school grounds.

    The following info is from the  http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/rd/8ad93b61-5d1a-46e9-ad51-f17b07e91684  site :- 
    History:
    The school opened officially in 1958 and was reorganised as a middle school in 1976. It had ceased to function by 1977 when the premises were taken over by St. Benet Biscop's Roman Catholic Aided High School. The school records were transferred to the new Meadowdale County Middle School which opened in 1982.

    Nicknamed The Woody school, as it was mainly constructed of wooden planks. The school of our mate, Keith Lockey. Don't know when it first opened but it first appears on the 1951 ordnance survey map and it is not on the previous map of 1938.  Destroyed by fire in 1969. When the replacement school was built, opening in 1974, it combined with the grammar school to be Bedlingtonshire Community High School.

    I have been creating an Album, on this site, for each of the schools in the Bedlington area. Whilst looking at an 1896 map of Bedlington around the area of Hollymout Hall & Bell's Place I noticed there was a 'Sch.' identified. I have not found any further info, on the www, about this school. I have not checked the historical records held at the Woodhorn Museum. The label 'Sch.' does not appear on the 1920 map but the label 'Misn. Rm.' appears to have taken it's place.

    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.

    Info from Rootsweb online genealogy forum :- 'Sleekburn had a school from at least 1842. This is supported by entries in the Methodist records by a local preacher who stated that he preached in the new Board School in that year. Evidently there are no surviving records to indicate when the School was opened. The School was of course built by the Colliery Owner, more so to keep his workers happy and content.. It appears that the School closed in 1941 and was taken over and used as a County Library.

    In History Hollow 'Reedy' posted - 'List Of Pubs And Clubs -Bedlington District'
    From that list I extracted the establishments within Bedlington and along with a list of list of pubs in 1886 from one of Evan Martin's books on Bedlingtonshire I, assisted by members on the Bedlington Remembered & Bygone Bedlington Facebook sites, attempted to find evidence of the listed establishments.
    This was not a delv into historic documents etc., just a www search combined with some 2009 Google Street View images.
