Following the success of YDT's dance programme since 2008 we are very excited to be offering a 'Boys Only' Street/Contemporary class at Hexham Middle School from Monday 10 September 2018. This energetic class is open to boys in year groups 5-8 and will develop strength, stamina and flexibility as well as introducing boys to a range of dance techniques. This term will be taught by Michael Heatley, Artistic Director of Hit the Ground Running Dance Theatre Company. (

Continuing our showcase of our pupils' culinary talents, our Year 7 and Year 8 pupils have recently completed their Food Technology practical assessments and have produced some fantastic dishes!
