Welcome

Welcome to the website of Hardwick Middle School. I hope you find it clear, informative and occasionally inspiring.

The first week of the new term has brought the sunshine and showers typical of Spring but, many students seem happy weathering the storms in their new hoodies. If you'd like to make a late order you can do so via the website here:

It was a pleasure to welcome some former students back on Thursday to work with Y8. They were completing an audit of their skills, and writing action plans to maximise their remaining time here at Hardwick. The Y8 students did the school proud with their mature approach and thoughtful reflection. We're looking forward to helping them to achieve their goals for transition to upper school.

We're really proud of Emma Bartley who has been selected to represent England in the Under 13s Five Nations squash event this month. We wish her every success in Lilleshall.

We're excited to have been invited to King Edward VI School next week to help them prepare their library and learning centre for Y7&8 students in September. If your child has some ideas about what they'd like to see in the library they should talk to one of the student Library Assistants, Mrs Holloway or, one of the Reading Leaders.

Whilst we encourage parents to drop-off children outside the school site, we appreciate that it is sometimes necessary for parents to drive up to the school. For the safety of all, we ask that you do not exceed 5 mph on the drive. Please note that children are supervised by duty staff from 8.20am and should not arrive before this, unless by prior arrangement.
