Due to disruption caused by the recent snow, the Travelling Book Fair has been rescheduled. It will now arrive in school and be open from Monday 23 April 2018 and will depart on Friday 27 April 2018. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to welcoming the book fair soon.

After a snowy Thursday 1 March postponed proceedings, HMS pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 8 March 2018. There were book-themed assemblies as well as quizzes, reading activities in lessons and even a fancy dress competition. Congratulations to our costume competition winners:

Year 5 - Anna F

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.
