On my first day at work at Hayes I felt I had ‘come home.’ Now I’m sure this was partly due to the fact that I had previously lived in the local community for many years and that my 3 children had all had very happy experiences as students at the school; but it was also largely because I had been made to feel so welcome and valued as a member of staff.
Everyone has been very helpful and friendly and the students with whom I have come into contact in the corridors have all been thoroughly pleasant and respectful.
Having been in my present role at another school for some years, I know how demanding and stressful the job can be. At Hayes, the examinations department is fully supported by the Senior Leadership Team and all teaching and associate staff departments work together to the benefit of students and staff. Organisation and school procedures are straightforward and run smoothly, which makes life easier and more productive.
All in all, I’m so pleased to have made the move to Hayes and feel very fortunate to be part of such an impressive and caring school.
