On Monday 26 September 2016, along with lots of other schools in the UK and across Europe, Hexham Middle School celebrated European Day of Languages (EDL). This is an annual celebration to recognise the linguistic diversity in Europe and promote language learning.

Pupils took part in quizzes on the day to show how much they knew about Europe as well as participating in language taster sessions throughout the week. Pupils were given the opportunity to learn: Dutch, German, Russian and Swedish. Lots of fun was had by all participants!
