Our school is situated to the east of the village of Wylam in a very pleasant setting overlooking the Tyne Valley. There has been a school at Wylam for well over a hundred years, but the present building was opened in May 1974. It is a purpose built First School comprising five classrooms, a hall, kitchen, administrative area and a 26 place nursery. The school has an excellent playing field, which is used extensively throughout the year.
