Hugh Sexey Church of England Middle School
Together we believe; Together we achieve


Welcome to Hugh Sexey Church of England Middle School!

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Hugh Sexey Church of England Middle School website. I hope that it provides you with a flavour of our school and an insight into our core values and beliefs. We are very proud of our school and the progress that our pupils make, both academically, emotionally and socially.


We are a very popular oversubscribed Middle school, attracting many families from outside of our catchment area. This is because parents tell us that they prefer the three-tiered, middle school system and feel it promotes a more effective education for their child.


We are a very busy, friendly learning community, with lots going on. We recognise and understand that children have many abilities, talents and personalities so knowing that each pupil is brilliantly different and that they learn in a multitude of ways our aim is to develop these attributes, raise their expectations and provide the support and challenge that is necessary for lifelong success.


Hugh Sexey Church of England Middle School is a happy school where pupils and teachers enjoy working together.  We have a strong ethos based on core values of respect, tolerance and courtesy.  We set high standards of behaviour and actively promote self-discipline, respect, resilience and responsibility.  Through these values, our pupils gain the confidence to take their place in society and develop the skills and attitudes to enable them to succeed in their chosen paths. 


We provide our pupils with challenging and stimulating learning opportunities that enables each of them to grow in confidence and develop attitudes and attributes that will prepare them for the challenges they will face in today’s rapidly changing world. We recognises that the gift of learning is a shared, life-long process and that the partnerships between pupils, teachers, parents and the Wessex Learning Trust are vitally important in ensuring that all our pupils aspire to achieve the best possible learning outcomes they can. Your children are at the very heart of everything we do and we really do believe that ‘We Learn Together’.


Our Christian foundation is very important in the life of our school and shapes all that we do on a daily basis and this ethos is strengthened through our strong links with the local churches and Diocese.


It is a huge privilege and honour as the Headteacher of Hugh Sexey to welcome children into our school and to watch them learn, grow, develop and mature into the young adults who will leave us and become reflective, open-minded global citizens and valued members of our local and wider community. It really is the best job in the world.


I hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information you are looking for. However, please feel free to contact us with any queries or feedback that you may have.


Best wishes

Paul Tatterton
