All parents who would like their child to come to Hexham Middle School must complete a Northumberland County Council application form. Information on how to apply is available from the Northumberland County Council Website.

The County Council’s criteria for admission are set out in the School Admissions Handbook. If you would like to speak to someone about the application process or to arrange to visit the school prior to applying for a place please contact the school on:
