As Head of Year, you'll play a pivotal role in the lives of our new students, guiding and supporting them through their new high school academic journey and personal development. You'll be a mentor, advocate, and leader, responsible for creating a nurturing and inclusive atmosphere where every student feels valued and empowered to succeed.

You will provide guidance and support to students, offering pastoral care and fostering a culture of respect and understanding. Working with class teachers and form tutors, you will monitor student progress and academic performance, identifying areas for improvement and implementing strategies for success. You will establish strong communication channels with parents/guardians, keeping them informed about their child's progress and involving them in educational activities.

At Pinner High School, our pedagogical approach is based on the principles of Rosenshine. All our lessons begin with a do now activity, aimed at recalling knowledge. In addition, a high proportion of students are categorised as higher ability, we therefore expect appropriate challenge in learning. Learning episodes contain challenge tasks in addition to main activities which support the progression of all students. Students often use green pens to self assess work and teachers use expert subject knowledge for assessment for learning.

If you're ready to make a meaningful difference in the lives of young people and help shape the future generation, we want to hear from you! Join us in creating a supportive and inspiring learning environment where every student can thrive.
