  1. I think this picture was taken in the 1950s. This was the Infant school playground and the “prefab” classrooms are on the background. I attende Brambles School from February 1955 to July 2962.

  2. Lovely to see this old photo, brings back memories. I taught as a supplementary teacher for a year at Brambles Farm Primary School in 1966-7 (headmaster Mr. Grant) and had a lovely time. Though not many families were well off then and some had their troubles, the kids (and most of the teachers) were absolutely great!

    • I will never forget Mrs Stone. She terrified me and rapped my knuckles more than once. I also remember Mr Padgett, he too liked using the ruler across the knuckles

  4. Hi, were thee any other schools in the brambles farm area in the early 1920s. My father and his sister stayed with their aunt at Brambles Farm for a few years. Where is the best place to find photographs. Thank yoh.

  5. Hello Allyson,

    Paul Stephenson’s book ‘Education in Middlesbrough’ lists schools/colleges and their opening dates. Unfortunately, we can’t find any in Brambles Farm dating from the early 1920s, only much later. Brambles Farm Primary opened in 1935. We have photographs of schools in central Middlesbrough such as Fleetham St, and if it likely that your relatives attended one of these we would be able to help with this. The Archives have some school records, so it may be worth contacting them too.

    Kind regards,
    Middlesbrough Reference Library
