Sunderland's Highfield Academy in nine nostalgic photos from the Echo archives

School visits, meeting a VIP and a drum workshop

School is in session for nine retro scenes - from Highfield Academy.

You'll get a big tick from us if you get in touch after browsing through these scenes which look back at the school from 2007 to 2015.

Watch out for a reminder of the day when a music legend came to town; and when the pupils got to meet the stars of a stage show.

Enjoy the journey back through the years thanks to these Echo archive photos.
