Our Under 15 cricket team successfully retained the county cup for the fourth successive year.

Put into bat we made 109 off our 20 overs with Mattie Percival top scoring with 50.

In reply Kings Priory, Tynemouth were dismissed for 94 with Mattie Pugh taking two wickets and Tom Scott bowling a very economical spell.

A massive thank you to all of the staff, students and parents who donated to the Nepal Earthquake Appeal on Friday. Together we raised £1,650 which will be match funded by the government to give a total of £3,300. This will be put to good use helping the huge numbers of people affected by this disaster.

As part of a Federation, Hexham Middle School and Queen Elizabeth High School share a single Governing Body of nine members. We currently have two vacancies for Co-opted Governors.

The Role

The Governing Body has three core functions:

  • Defining the ethos, objectives and strategic direction of the schools.
  • Holding the Executive Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the schools.
  • Ensuring the sound, proper and effective use of the schools’ financial resources.

Whether elected or co-opted, the role of governors is to carry out these core functions, not to represent any particular stakeholder group from which they may be drawn. The role is very much like that of a non-executive director of a company or trust. The operational, day-to-day running of the schools is carried out by the Executive Headteacher with the Senior Leadership Teams.
