But let’s not forget all the fantastic, memorable and poignant times that pupils have had at the current school over the years.
We found these 9 great archive reminders in the Sunderland Echo archives and they include everything from a harvest festival in 2003 to a mock wedding in 2011.
We hope these scenes bring back great memories. Why not take a look and then get in touch to tell us more.
1. Ring any bells?
Pupils were pictured at a mock wedding which was held at Hetton Methodist Church in 2003. Does this bring back wonderful memories?
