WEEK 38 - Friday 16 July 2021


I have had a great week introducing myself to the Year 7 students during assemblies as their new Head of Year from September.  It was great to meet them although a shame that not all of them could be there due to the number that are currently isolating. 

I am determined to follow on from the work that Miss Pinkney has done in upholding our school values and daily routines that she has introduced.  The effect is clear and the year group are incredibly organised and self-disciplined.

Whilst we look to build on that great work, September will bring a fresh start for everyone and the beginning of a new four-year journey to the end of Year 11 with the support of a new pastoral team, including their tutors, Miss Staveley, Assistant Head of Year 8 and myself.  This has already begun with the Assemblies last week and, of course, they have already met their new tutors and will spend tutor time with them next week.

I wish you a happy summer and look forward to meeting all our Year 8s in September.


Mrs Taylor

Head of Year 11

Miss Staveley

Assistant Head of Year 11


So I guess this is ‘goodbye’ from me; however, please be assured that all of the relevant information has been successfully passed on to Mrs Taylor and Miss Staveley. I wish all of the Year 7 students the very best in their future at Hessle High School and although I am no longer their Head Of Year, I will continue to keep a watchful eye on them as they grow into young adults achieving their full potential.
