The new building on Elwick Road replaces the secondary school’s original teaching blocks that had barely changed since High Tunstall opened almost 50 years ago.

It has been designed with the school’s strong focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects in mind.

Take a tour of the plush new facility here with a selection of pictures captured by Mail photographer Frank Reid on their first day.
