Prior to 1972 there was a primary school in Wellfield. With Northumberland's creation of a three-tier education system, the school was divided into a First School (South Wellfield First School) and a Middle school (originally called South Wellfield Middle School).
In 1993, South Wellfield Middle School and other schools were threatened with closure by North Tyneside Council with a view to reduce surplus places. After a campaign by staff, parents and pupils to keep the school open, the school successfully applied in 1994 to become one of the few grant-maintained schools in North East England.
Following this success, the school changed its name in September 1994 to Wellfield Middle School (Grant-Maintained). When grant-maintained status was abolished, it became known simply as Wellfield Middle School.
