Of course, Hessle Mount School has been around for over 40 years, starting in 1979.  And many an Old Hymerian attended the primary school before continuing their education at Hymers College.

Some past students told us of their memories:

I have very fond memories of sports days on the lower field opposite the entrance; playing “tig” and running through the privet hedges and willow tree that are/ used to be there.  I remember being a milk monitor and bringing in the crates of milk bottles from the playground behind the building.  I also think a lady called Mrs Wilsden (?) used to teach me maths - however it was a very long time ago so I may be wrong. Happy times though.  Good luck to all

I went to Hessle Mount pre-Hymers.  There was a jackdaw called Rocky that used to come out at playtime and fly around the children!  We were terrified (I’m sure he was harmless!).  My headmistress was Mrs Cutting and teacher Mrs Heelas - wonderful teachers.  Many happy days spent at Hessle Mount.  Also my grandad, Bob Locking was one of the founders!  Good luck Hymers and Hessle mount xx

Mrs Wilsden was also my maths teacher.  I remember Mrs Riddle driving a really old style car and Mrs Healis??? i think that’s how it’s spelt…

Lovely memories of a wonderful school

As an old Hessle Mounter, old Hymerian and ex-Head I wish Hymers Hessle Mount all the very best for the future.

I went to Hessle Mount; loved playing in the grounds on breaktime running around the willow trees and I remember the milk cartons in the bucket in a morning! We had nominated milk monitors to bring them to us, I loved being milk monitor!  I also remember Dumble the Dinosaur.  We all made him out of papier mache and he stood outside the front door for a while.
