School Parliament & Council

The School Parliament and Council had their Inaugural Meeting during Local Democracy Week. Members of the student body that were democratically elected onto our School Parliament or Cabinet Council got the chance to meet Mr Trevor Cessford (County Councillor for Northumberland County Council).
A big thank you for him approaching the school and offering to talk to our pupils about local democracy in action. Pupils that attended were presented with their badges and learned about Mr Cessford's pathway into political life, the role of different councils, the nature of the work he does on a daily basis and how elections work.
Environmental Improvement Group
We are launching an environmental improvement lunchtime group based in Beaumont building for pupils in any year group: the New Buds Quad Squad.
The plan is to develop small projects that transform aspects of the quad area. Pupils that like being outdoors, possibly regard themselves as green-fingered or keen to be part of team making things, are very welcome to join.
The direction the group will take will be synonymous with the growth of a new tree; we would like to plant 'seeds' and see them flourish.
To help establish secure roots we are calling upon anyone who may want to donate items to support the lunchtime club including:
- garden pots (terracotta/plastic)
- reusable planting trays
Change to Sports Clubs w/c 15/10/18
We would firstly like to thank you very much for your support with our sporting provision this year. It has been great to see so many pupils across all age groups taking part in sports each week.
As a result of this we have a number of fixtures taking place each day next week so as a result of this the following clubs will not be running.
- Tuesday 15 October 2018 – KS3 Football
- Wednesday 16 October 2018 – KS2 Football
- Thursday 17 October 2018 – Girls' Sports Club
The other clubs will continue as normal.
Thank you again

HMS Sports Round-up w/c 01/10/18
Last week was another busy week for our sports teams:
HMS Year 8 boys were in action in the football county cup against an extremely strong Ashington side. In what was a very even game HMS missed a number of chances early on which they later regretted after falling behind to a deflected shot. Judah then equalised after some quick thinking from Hugo. Man of the match Harry made save after save but was eventually beaten from what proved to be the winning goal. A special thank you to Taylor who stepped up an age group to help the Year 8s out who were missing a key defender and he played extremely well in what was a high class game.
