Western Boys’ School

A Memory of Wallsend.

I attended the Western from 1964 until 1968. Mr Heward was the Head. He was strict but also fair. Other teachers that I remember are Messrs Burse, Thompson, Seaton, Spencer, Goodfellow and Taylor. Mainly all good guys with the exception of Taylor the science teacher.
The Western was a small school and was a very pleasant building inside. The girls school was separate and was a mirror image of the boys school.
The school was at the bottom of West Street on the corner of Forest Road. Sadly it was demolished a few years back and replaced by new housing. I think the caretakers house remains.

With thanks to James Cooper for this memory of Wallsend
