We are researching the schools and school life in Brafferton and Aycliffe village from earliest times to the present day. If you have any information, photographs, or memorabilia we would be very interested in hearing from you.
Did you attend any of the schools in Brafferton or Aycliffe, or did you teach in these schools or have family members who taught in them? Do you have any interesting stories? We would love to hear from you.
We are always looking for historical memorabilia, especially material to copy and to put onto the website. If you have anything you would like us to access, please contact using the email contact above, or telephone our chairman, David Blair, on 01325 316749, or bring them along to any member of the Society.
