Another photo of the Governing Body (the ladies multi-tasked and moved). This one, with the names written on the back, posted on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group site by Mel Morpeth.

I asked Mel about the date the school changed to a Grammar School following the 1944 Butler Education Act that promised Secondary Education for all in 3 tiers:- Grammar, Technical and Secondary, decided upon by the 11+ and he replied with :- '  I think I can help you with the missing date. In March 1945 at the Secondary School's speech day (held at the Wallaw Cinema) Headmaster Mr H Goudie MA announced 'after April 1st the school will be known as Bedlington Grammar'. Hope this helps.'
