But the memories live on and here are 13 reminders of the school which we found in the Sunderland Echo archives.
So if you were pictured at the sports day, in your finest outfits for a mini prom, or on stage for a performance, we may have you in the spotlight.
Take a look for yourself and why not share your own memories of your time at Carley Hill.
1. Going red, white and blue in 2003
The Carley Hill sports day in 2003 had a very patriotic feel. Alex Armstrong and Natasha Moran even had colourful basketballs for the occasion.
2. A culinary reminder from 2003
Jodie Banks and Chelsie James did really well in the City of Sunderland Schools Cookery Competition 17 years ago. Does this bring back memories?
3. On stage in 2004
Year 6 pupils pictured after they helped to write a play based on a school book. Who can remember its name?
4. So smart in 2004
Staff and pupils dressed up for their mini prom in 2004 and it had extra significance as it also marked the closure of the school. Does this bring back memories?
