The school and community grew with the collieries. Families attending the school were involved in the West Stanley Pit Disaster of 1909, when 168 men and boys were lost.....
School presented by Durham County Council, dismantled in 1989 and rebuilt 1991-1 with aid from the European Regional Development Fund and Tyne Tees Television.
