STARS is a West Northumberland campaign group bringing together communities to challenge proposals to close many of our amazing rural first, middle and high schools. We are urging everyone to get involved in the two consultations currently under way in the region.

Hadrian Learning Trust has launched a formal consultation on proposals to expand Hexham Middle School and Queen Elizabeth High School to create a single 11-18 secondary school. Deadline 29th March 2018 @ 3.30pm

Northumberland County Council has launched a separate consultation on schooling across the region, which could see the closure of up to 16 schools! Deadline 9th April 2018 @ Midnight
For further information on both consultations, including links to response forms and supporting documentation, please go to the Consultations page of this website.

Email your concerns directly to educationconsultations@northumberland.gov.uk

We are arranging events where you can get involved including a peaceful protest at County Hall in Morpeth, 11am on Monday April 9th. Please get in touch via the Contact page for further information.
