WEEK 34 - Friday 18 June 2021

In this week’s blog I would like to take the opportunity to inform you of a change to your child’s HOY and AHOY and the reasoning behind this.

One of the roles which I have had for a number of years is as the Transition Coordinator which involves me having close contact with a number of Primary Schools in the area. As part of the role, I visit Primary Schools and specifically the Year 5 and 6 students. This means that a large number of young people in this area not only get to know me but also gain knowledge and understanding of Secondary School and specifically Hessle High School. As a school we therefore believe that it is important for the students to continue their transition to Secondary School with myself as their HOY and Miss Briggs as the Assistant Head of Year.

So what does this mean for you and your child? When your child returns to school in September, Mrs Taylor will be their Head of Year and Miss Staveley their Assistant Head of Year. All policies and procedures will stay the same and all of the rules and expectations will continue. 

Our Year 7 tutor team will also remain with me and this means that a new team of tutors will take responsibility for the current Year 7 students as they move into Year 8.  Your child will then continue their time in school through to Year 11 with Mrs Taylor, Miss Staveley and their new tutor.

Mrs Taylor will be writing a future blog in which she will share further details with you but in the meantime I would like to assure you that there are a number of meetings taking place to ensure all information regarding the Year 7 students is being shared and Mrs Taylor and Miss Staveley and that they are fully aware of any of the student needs within the Year group.

If you have any questions regarding these changes please email us at

Take care,

Miss Pinkney

Head of Year 7

Mrs Briggs

Assistant Head of Year 7
