Valley Gardens Middle School

Valley Gardens Middle School is located in Monkseaton, Whitley Bay in North Tyneside, United Kingdom. The Headteacher is David Godfrey, it is the largest middle school in Whitley Bay, with about 730 pupils on roll and SATs results are above the national average. It serves a suburban catchment, its motto is "What do you want to achieve?"Most students transfer to Whitley Bay High School at the end of Year 8 due to its close proximity. Prior to school reorganisation in the 1970s the building was a secondary modern; the school has had a varied history. The school was built in 1957, it closed through the summer of 1973 and turned from Whitley Bay County Secondary School into Valley Gardens Middle School. For the academic year 1973-74 it operated as a Middle School with only years 2,3 and 4. Year 1 of the Middle school commenced in 1974-75. In 2000 the school was threatened with closure after North Tyneside council wanted to turn to a two-tier system instead of the three-tier system, used, this did not happen.

In 2002, an extra year five class was added to take the numbers from 5 classes to 6. At that time, every other year had six classes already; this move was taken to increase capacity and increase chances of getting into sixth form in life. In 2002 the school governors encouraged the local education authority to provide more classrooms and modernise the buildings; the school has been renovated to fit the large number of pupils in the school. A new year five block with state-of-the-art interactive whiteboards in each classroom has been built and was opened by the former Foreign Secretary, David Miliband; these boards have now been fitted into nearly every classroom in the school. The front of the school has been rebuilt with a new main office, a head teacher's room and a meeting room. Two special needs rooms have been built to help with the number of pupils on the special needs register; this is all to bring the school from its 1970s style into the 21st Century. The school has been awarded numerous trophies.

One of them is the International School Award, which celebrates the school success in doing international activities such as an International Day in 2005, plus the schools high success in languages. It was presented by BBC News reader Anna Ford in 2006; the school received an Outstanding review from Ofsted in 2013.

Torbjørnsbu Station

Torbjørnsbu Station is a former railway station at Torbjørnsbu in Arendal, Norway. Located on the Arendal Line, it was operated by the Norwegian State Railways; the station was opened on 1 May 1911 and consisted of a station building and a loading spur. The station remained manned until 1939 and was closed; the station is 1.40 kilometers from Arendal Station at 21.2 meters above mean sea level, 316.23 kilometers from Oslo Central Station. It was located at the western mouth of Barbu Tunnel. Plans for a station in the area started for a spur to be built near the western mouth of the Barbu Tunnel, at Myrene, to store rolling stock; the plans were expanded to include a station, which opened on 1 May 1911. A station building, designed by Harald Kaas and, identical to the one at Rossedalen Station, was built. Additional spurs and a longer platform were built in 1917 and 1918. However, there has never been a passing loop at the station, it became unmanned from 1939 and closed. BibliographyBjerke, Thor. Togbytte på Nelaug.
