21 pictures from school days in Sunderland in the 1980s

Back in time for views from Thorney Close to Thornhill - and much more

Ah the memories. Field trips, choir practice, sports lessons, classrooms.

We’ve got it all in these 21 Echo archive photos from Sunderland schools.

It’s just the ticket if you went to one of Wearside’s schools between 1980 and 1989.

Especially if you were a pupil at Quarry View in 1980, New Silksworth in 1985 or Thorney Close in 1989.

Go to the top of the class if you spot someone you know.
