Meet our Deputy Head!

Mr Wright is almost a month in to his Deputy Head (Management) role here at Hymers College.

After growing up in the locality, Mr Wright obtained a Maths degree at Durham University, then moved back to East Yorkshire to complete his Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).

Starting out as a maths teacher, Mr Wright has worked in different roles in a variety of schools across the local area. When asked what brought him to Hymers College, he stated “I was always looking to move into the private sector at some point and when this opportunity came up it was the perfect timing for me. I was already very familiar with Hymers , I had played sport here and have worked with several members of staff in other schools but what appealed to me the most was the value that is placed on the whole development of its pupils, academic performance is important but there are many other elements such as the extra-curricular programme and the commitment to pastoral care that ensures Hymers provides a well-rounded education.”

He continued “My biggest challenge will be getting to know the school inside and out over the first half term. There is a real buzz in the air and I look forward to it continuing throughout my years here.”

Welcome to the team!
