Our fully-searchable spreadsheet file is a transcript of the Admissions Register for Wearhead School up to 1912. (We do not publish records of people who may still be living).
The file includes pupils from all parts of Upper Weardale to the west of St John’s Chapel.
It is searchable by surname, forenames, parent’s (or guardian’s) names, residence, etc; and it includes date of birth for most pupils.
