Mrs H Storr

Acting Deputy Headteacher

I have been an English teacher for the last 20 years and have worked in a several schools in Barnsley and Sheffield over the course of my career. I have held a range of senior leadership positions, including Assistant Headteacher and SENCO. I have a wealth of experience in teaching and learning and I am particularly interested in using the science of learning to ensure that our students are enabled to achieve excellent outcomes. I am very grateful to the staff and students for the warm welcome that they have given me during the first weeks of this term and have been impressed by the calm and purposeful learning environment. I am very much looking forward to working with the staff, students, parents and carers over the coming months and years.

Mr N Mallaband

Assistant Headteacher

I started my teaching career at High Storrs in 2012 as a PE Teacher and never looked back. Sport has always been my greatest passion and being able to teach and inspire students through physical activity has really motivated me to progress in my career. Throughout my teaching career I have always been drawn to pastoral care and have been a successful pastoral leader for the last five years. Having this knowledge and experience has allowed me to support students in the best possible way. As Assistant Headteacher at Stocksbridge High School I am excited to work towards creating a culture of exceptional behaviour and positive attitudes where all students feel valued and supported. This is an exciting journey for us all!
