Welcome to the HeartSpace from Mr Crook & Mrs Crook

Mrs Crook: I am privileged to be Assistant Principal here at Penistone Grammar School. My portfolio is diverse, but my main responsibility is strategic oversight of the HeartSpace. I honestly feel I have the best job in the world and I am honoured to work with such an amazing team and incredible students everyday.

The Principal and I work very closely together to ensure our students receive the best possible offer. This includes teaching on a daily basis and being actively involved in all of the Heart Space’s daily activities (especially dressing up!).

Throughout my career I have been fortunate enough to have worked and led across three different authorities, in both primary and secondary settings. My roles have included: Teacher of ages 2-16; Head of Key Stage; LA Moderator; Primary PE Specialist; Designated Safeguarding Lead; Deputy Headteacher; and SENCO. I am also proud to be a licensed adolescent THRIVE practitioner.

Mr Crook: I am really proud of the HeartSpace here at PGS. The provision is changing lives and we are on a very special journey towards becoming a centre of excellence.
