HMS Admissions Information
Hexham Middle School’s admission limit (also known as a Published Admissions Number) is 150 in each year group.
The school primarily serves Hexham and the surrounding areas of Acomb, Barrasford, Beaufront, Chollerton, Chollerford, Humshaugh and Whitley Chapel, but will accept pupils from outside this area if places are available. Pupils attending Hexham Middle School normally go on to Queen Elizabeth High School when they reach the age of transfer. Please view the catchment area in the map below. Please note that the catchment area for the Hexham Partnership is the same as the catchment area for Queen Elizabeth High School.

How to Apply for a Place at HMS
You are able to apply for a middle school place now. Applications for Hexham Middle School, and other Northumberland schools, are managed by the admissions team at Northumberland County Council. Details of the application process can be found by clicking here.
If you do not apply for a place and you are resident in Northumberland you will be allocated to a school after all other applications have been allocated. You will only be allocated to your catchment school if there are still places available. If there are no spaces, you will be allocated the nearest school which has places available.
