After seeing some pictures online of this derelict school from other explorers, I just had to find this school and give it an explore myself and after much research I found it thankfully. This explore was over two visits over the course of June. This place was a small but still a fantastic explore and has since been demolished.

Milfield First School was located in a housing estate in the small village of Milfield in Northumberland and was heavily overgrown but there was no evidence of vandalism, only natural decay which was great!

There is not much history about this school but it only had capacity for 20 children ages 5 to 9 it consisted of three classrooms, two of which were merged together to form one large classroom and the third room was named the ‘SureStart room’ for extracurricular activities by the looks of it. Furthermore, there was no kitchen so this makes me think that all the children and staff who attended this school had to bring their own food. This school closed on the 31 August 2009 and had been left empty ever since until demolition in September 2019.

What an interesting find.. Such a small little school compared to the ones from nowadays, seems like it's quite rare to find a place that's not been vandalised or graffitied over!

Thankyou! I know it was so small. I’m so glad it wasn’t vandalised when I visited it. Almost no one knew about it.

Nice little mooch you had there,

As regards food, I believe what often used to happen is a local secondary school (or such) with catering facilities would bring meals over at lunch time for children wanting them or those on free meals. Of course they would still have children with packed lunches at least thats how it used to work around here.
