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

I am delighted by the feedback of students and parents over the past term. We have focused relentlessly on developing our teaching, reviewing homework, increasing students' progress and giving our students a whole range of new opportunities to build their character and extend their skills.

As ever, they have responded magnificently.

In the coming term there is a lot that we are excited about - new sporting opportunities, more student leadership activities, a development of our extra-curricular music provision, and the establishment of a Hardwick Debating Society that will be ready to take on the world!

Many of these opportunities come as a result of the powerful partnership of twenty schools in the Bury Schools Partnership, and thanks to our special link with King Edward VI School.

As always, we appreciate the feedback of parents and carers. Take a look at our improved 'Get in Touch' pages to see how you can make contact.

Our fortnightly Newsletter is emailed to all parents and carers. You can also follow our work via our News pages, and via Twitter.

Many thanks for your interest in our work and confidence in our superb staff team.
