Recommended Comments

Teacher standing on the left is Jim Wood and the Headteacher sitting on the right is Ben Bekley.

Evan Martin commented, on a staff photo,  in his book - Images of England, Bedlingtonshire - :- When the new school was opened in Barrington in 1913, no one was more pleased than Headmaster Ben Berkley pictured here in 1920 with his staff, with Jim Wood on the right. Berkley had taken up the job at Barrington in 1878 when he was twenty-one years old and stayed for forty years. He lived in he school house until 1905 when he and his family moved to Willowbridge where he died in 1932.
