Meet the Head: Tim Hoyle


Tim has a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Buckingham, a BA Joint Honours Degree in Physical Education and History from Loughborough University, and has been Headmaster since September 2017. This followed six highly successful years as Headmaster at Huddersfield Grammar School.

Who/what inspired you to become a teacher?

Alan Green clearly loved every aspect of his work at John Smeaton High School in Leeds. Coaching youngsters in a variety of different sports; demonstrating enthusiasm, dedication and enjoyment of his own working life; showing a genuine interest in developing the skills and talents of young people; all made a positive and obvious difference to many young lives and developed similar aspirations for myself to work in education.

What achievement are you most proud of as Head?

Becoming Headmaster at Huddersfield Grammar School provided me with the new challenges that I sought after 19 wonderful years working at Warwick School. The developments at the school have been remarkable in all aspects and the pride in looking back at the achievements of those 6 years in West Yorkshire comes from reflecting on the times when we, as a staff leadership team, genuinely worked together to overcome adversity and obstacles.

What does a successful school look like to you?

A purposeful, productive and happy organisation that knows exactly where it wants to go and collectively works together, pupils, parents and staff, to achieve its aims and objectives. A successful school should have the development of people at its heart and sport, music and drama as its heartbeat.

What is the most important quality you want every child to have when they leave your school? And why?

This would be their inner self-belief. An understanding that they can achieve and succeed in their chosen field; that they can learn and recover from their mistakes and failings; that they are valuable as a person in their own right; but also able to have a positive impact and to show how they respect, value and understand others.

Please give 5 words to describe the ethos of your school.

Community, Supporting, Aspirational, Responsibility, Enriching.

Catchment information
