At Hexham Middle School, we value the contribution that business and employer links can make to support the wider personal development of our pupils. Research shows that pupils who have meaningful encounters with employers throughout their school life are less likely to progress as a NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training). The rich tapestry of employers across the north east region can play a significant role in igniting sparks of aspiration and motivation for the next generation.
