Jesmond, Osborne Road, Suffolk House
Suffolk House was built around 1882 as a ladies' private school at the cornor of Osborne Road and Fern Avenue. An advert for the school said it was 'a charming situation in one of the healthiest suburbs of Newcastle within a few minutes walk of the Moor and Jesmond Dene, and convenient of access from the city by tramcars passing the school every ten minutes'. The school closed around 1902 and the building became a house. Occupants included a ship owner, solicitor and cashier. From around 1960 the building was the Gregg High School for girls. It is now student apartments.
