HMS Ofsted Inspection 

As you know, Ofsted visited our school in April. I always say that we have so much to be proud of at HMS – engaged, enthusiastic and positive pupils who love learning; dedicated and highly-skilled staff who go the extra mile for our pupils and a supportive wider school community for which we are very grateful. To have that sense of pride validated by visiting inspectors was a great feeling and I am delighted to say that Hexham Middle School remains an Ofsted ‘good’ school. This was an ‘ungraded’ inspection, so each aspect does not receive an individual grade on this occasion. A copy of the report has been sent home to parents/carers today. 

The lead inspector gave us a wide range of overwhelmingly positive feedback across all aspects of our school. It was also fantastic to hear that we received so many positive responses to the parent, pupil and staff surveys. 

I am delighted with the outcome of the inspection and with the final report. I am so proud of our school, the children and the whole HMS team. As a staff team, we continually strive to provide the very best educational experience for the children who attend our school. We are so proud of the great classroom learning; the wider curriculum opportunities focused on personal development; the safe, caring culture we have and our relentless focus to provide inclusive and individualised support where it is most needed.
