  • Preparing pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life
  • Supporting young people to achieve their full potential
  • Empowering young people to plan and manage their own futures
  • Providing comprehensive information on all options
  • Raising aspirations
  • Promoting equality, diversity, social mobility and challenging stereotypes
  • Enabling young people to sustain employability and achieve personal and economic wellbeing throughout their lives

Hexham Middle School is committed to providing all its pupils with a planned programme of careers education activities throughout their school career, with opportunities at key transition points to access impartial information and expert advice and guidance. It is also committed to maximise the benefits for pupils by using a whole school approach involving parents, carers, external IAG providers, employers and other local agencies such North East Learning and Enterprise Partnership. HMS is committed to working towards Gatsby benchmarks.
