Year 7 - Terry Whittock
Year 8 - Simon Crowe
Year 9 - Kirsty Kyle
Year 10 - Helen Blair
Year 11 - Gordon Furness
The Heads of Year team is led by Simon Roberts, the Assistant Headteacher with overall responsibility for student welfare.
Heads of Year should be contacted through the school office.
At John Spence Community High School we believe that it is absolutely crucial for students to attend school as regularly as possible if they are going to succeed. Yvonne Lyster is our ‘Home/School Liaison Officer’ and is available to talk on any issue regarding attendance.
We use an electronic registration system so are aware on a 'lesson by lesson' basis attendance in the school. This means that we can give parents up to date information on the attendance of their child.
If you have any concerns regrding attendance please contact Yvonne Lyster through the school office.
