Redheugh Conundrum - a Memory of Gateshead.

Hello. Newbie here.
Found site during an attempt to clear up some confusion on a Teams, Gateshead FB page.
Is anyone out there an old pupil of Redheugh School, in Prest Street, during 50s and 60s? If so, you might be able to help.
Was it the case that R took in mixed infants at 5 and then, at some point, kids moved up into the junior school, which was separate girls and boys; and at the same age took in from other local infant schools, so still keeping I class of c 30 girls, another of boys, each year?
Hope I've explained this sufficiently.

I started at Prest Street school in 1956, after one year I moved to Rose Street school where I stayed for 2 years and then it was back to Prest street.
Never did understand why.

Permissable to post here a link to a new group, including both sexes at Redheugh? Thanks, if you find it appropriate!
