The school log books are an extraordinary record of North’s history which we have used to research the past and retell the school’s history through community events, workshops, exhibitions and special celebratory events for North’s 125th birthday on 12 November 2019.
From March 2020, this unique birthday year took a very different turn. The outbreak of the coronavirus, meant that school life changed drastically; staff and pupils were living through an unprecedented time in North’s history.
Headteacher Alan Garnett recorded the many changes in his weekly diary, published in the Daily Gazette. These too will become part of North’s archive for pupils of the future to discover what school was like in 2020.
