Pastoral System

At The Hollins a Head of Year  is dedicated to each year group to assist form tutors. The Head of Year has responsibility for the overall academic progress and social development of each child in that year.  He / she co-ordinates the work of form tutors and is an important source of information and contact for parents.

The Head of Year will encourage high standards of behaviour and dress and will maintain a clear record of students’ academic and personal progress as students move up through the school.

For academic year 2021/22 our heads of year are

Year 7     Mrs N johnstone 

Year 8    Mr M Bleasedale

Year 9    Mr P Drew

Year 10    Miss F Pilkington
