'Inspiring learning, inspiring passion, inspiring ambition'

These are the words that guide the Pinner High School Sixth Form and its ethos. It’s a motto that builds upon the outstanding success of the school and reflects what young adults need to succeed in education and beyond. We make it our priority to provide students not only with inspiring learning opportunities, but also the care, guidance and support needed to make informed choices about their future. 

Fundamentally, our aim is to further ensure that all of our students leave us as well-rounded, conscientious and compassionate young adults who care deeply about their school community and wider community at large.

Meet our Sixth Form Team

 

Mr Hemal Pandya (Assistant Headteacher - Head of Sixth Form)

 

Miss Victoria Bruck (Assistant Head of Sixth Form)

Victoria studied Medicine at Keele University. She graduated with a BSc in Applied Medical Science after deciding to leave medical school to pursue a career in teaching. After working as a Teaching Assistant for a year at Pinner High School, she completed her teacher training with Hillingdon SCITT whilst gaining a PGCE from Brunel University.

In addition to overseeing our Sixth Form students' academic and personal development, Victoria coordinates our extremely popular Medics Society programme.

Miss Rebecca Nelson (Assistant Head of Sixth Form)

Rebecca attended the University of York where she graduated with a BA in History and a MA in Modern history; specialising in transnational history and contemporary international politics.

After graduating, Rebecca joined Wembley High Technology College as the Year Leader for Year 13 where she played an integral part in the functioning of one of the country’s most successful sixth forms. After one year, Rebecca moved into the position of History teacher, and completed a PGCE through Ark Teacher training scheme and Goldsmiths University of London. After three years in this position, Rebecca was thrilled to join Pinner High School in September 2021. 

In addition to teaching history, Rebecca is excited to assist Sixth Form students through such a transitional turning point in their lives; bridging the gap between the highly structured educational world they are accustomed to, preparing them for the independence that they shall encounter in their next chosen stages and supporting them in accomplishing their aspirations.

In her spare time, Rebecca enjoys playing strategic board games, cooking and reading. She also enjoys travelling – particularly to places with beautiful coral reefs for snorkelling – in order to explore different foods, cultures and, of course, to find out more about the local history.
