UK Parliament Week

To mark UK Parliament Week, we had the pleasure of inviting Lord Hutton of Furness to speak to our Year 5 pupils about his life and work as a Lord. During a 25-minute presentation and Q&A session, Lord Hutton explained how he has a special connection to Hexham Middle School with his children and grandchildren coming to this school.  Our pupils learned about his journey in life in becoming a lord,  as well as explaining how Parliament works.  Lord Hutton also talked about how the 8 essential skills we learn about in school can be applied to his life and world of work.  Lord Hutton explained how certain positive moral traits such as honesty and humility are so important in his work.  We are hoping that our Year 5 pupils get the chance to meet Lord Hutton in person if he is able to visit the area soon.
