On Monday 29 January 2018 we had the privilege of asking 'Mr Speaker of the House', Rt Hon Mr John Bercow MP, a range of questions as part of an initiative known as 'Skype the Speaker'.

In Fellside Hall this morning, School Councillors and Members of Parliament were able to ask questions directly to Mr Speaker.

At 9:30am we went live and a range of questions were asked covering topics such as Brexit, life as Speaker of the House, issues that affect education today, controversial figures in national and world politics, and his personal interests.

Mr Speaker commended the pupils that represented Hexham Middle School for being very well prepared and he said that he would pass on his praise to our local MP here in Hexham.

The ever-popular author and friend of the school Peter J Murray visited this week to launch the sixth and final book in the Mokee Joe series: Mokee Joe, Scourge of the Emirates. We were privileged enough to be the first school in the North East to be host to the book launch for this novel and the visit, as ever, was a huge success.
