Our Sixth Form will open in September 2021, when our Trailblazing students reach Year 12.
Meet our Founding Head of Sixth Form, Mr. Chris Stump:
After graduating from The University of Nottingham with a BA (Hons) in Social and Cultural Studies, a gap year abroad confirmed that Chris wanted to dedicate his career to teaching. A PGCE in Secondary Religious Education at Sheffield Hallam University was followed by a role as Teacher of Sociology and Psychology at Eckington School in Sheffield before Chris moved to London to work at Park High School in Stanmore. After three years of leading Sociology and teaching Psychology and Philosophy and Ethics, the opportunity to work in a new school and help set-up a brand new Sixth Form proved irresistible: Chris moved to JCoSS in Barnet as Head of Sociology and undertook the role of Year Learning Coordinator for the inaugural cohort of Sixth Form students. In his 5 years at JCoSS, Chris also led teaching and learning initiatives as an SSAT accredited Lead Practitioner and held sessions for parents on how to support their child’s revision at home. In 2016, the Sociology department was recognised as eighth in country (second in London) in terms of value-added at A Level.
Presently based in Vietnam, Chris has been Assistant Headteacher at The ABC International School in Ho Chi Minh City since 2017. As part of this role, Chris oversees the academic and personal progress of all Sixth Form students and has supported them in gaining entry to some of the world’s most prestigious universities. He is excited to share his experience and expertise with Pinner High School students and cannot wait to assist them in seeing their ambitions realised, whatever they may be.
In his spare time Chris loves to travel (for food), to walk (to restaurants) and to read (cookery books).
Pinner High School is part of the Harrow Sixth Form Collegiate.
