The elementary schools in the North Tyne and Rede valleys had a rich and varied history in the years between 1870 and 1944. This book tells the stories of all seventeen schools from the tiny Emblehope School that only opened for a few years to the larger schools at Otterburn, Bellingham and Corsenside that still educate children at the present time. Oral history interviews with former pupils are used not only to bring life to the individual histories but also tell, in their own words and voices, what it felt like to be a pupil in the schools during the period from the end of the First World War to the 1944 Education Act. This book is a must read for anyone who has any connection with these schools while giving everyone else who reads it a fascinating glimpse into the day to day life of country children in this remote and beautiful part of England.
