In 1876 Gateshead High School for Girls opened at Prospect Cottage in Bensham. There were 28 pupils. In 1880 they moved to a purpose-built school at Windmill Hills, Gateshead (now demolished). Towards the the end of the 19th century a feeder school opened in Newcastle, which proved very popular. In 1900 new premises were opened here at Eskdale Terrace. It became the Central Newcastle High School for Girls. Windmill Hills School closed in 1907 and merged with Eskdale Terrace. The school belongs to the Girls Public Day School Trust and has nearly 1000 pupils. The senior pupils are at Eskdale Terrace, the juniors at former Nazareth House in Sandyford and infants at West Avenue, Gosforth.
