Walbottle Campus was formed in 1973 (though officially opened in 1960) by the Tyne and Wear County Council (defunct) following its creation in the same year. The school was formed by the merger of Walbottle East High School, Walbottle West High School and Walbottle Grammar. These schools were formed by the Northumberland Education Committee on the Walbottle Campus site as part of an attempt to save money. They only shared outdoor facilities but occasionally students would receive lessons at another of the schools. On the merger, the Head Teacher of the grammar school became Walbottle’s first Head Teacher and the other Head Teachers formed the first Walbottle Campus Leadership Team. In 2005, all of the middle schools in Newcastle upon Tyne were closed (excluding Gosforth Junior Academy). Students of Chapel House Middle School, Lemington Middle School, Chapel Park Middle School and Throckley middle school were placed in either Walbottle Campus or the First Schools in which they came from, all of which became primary schools, and Walbottle became a State Secondary School.
