Tyne and Wear HER(9348): West Monkseaton, Monkseaton Community High School - Details
West Monkseaton, Monkseaton Community High School
Single storey concrete block with some first floor areas. Striking monopitched roofs in copper that now have an attractive patination are the best features of this 1960s/70s school. The original open quadrangle was roofed in with a glazed pyramid strucure to create an IT centre c.1997. The community and sports block opened in 2002. It was the first Trust school in England. In 1985 and 1991 two disused mining shafts gave way forming large holes in the school grounds.
