Add, change or remove Head of House or Head of Year

Although there are business roles for Head of Year and Head of House, assigning one of these business roles will not link the staff to the students (for example for My Homepage).

To assign someone as a Head of Year or Head of House you must link them to the year or house. Once you have assigned these, you can use them all over Arbor! Send Mail Merges to students’ heads of year or house, or choose to notify them when a behaviour incident is logged.


You will need the School: Pastoral Structure: Administer permission to manage year groups and houses. If you don't have the permission, you'll need to ask your admin team to give you permission using these instructions.


Edit pastoral leads

Edit other pastoral leads such as Head of Year or Head of House from Students > Enrolment > Pastoral. Just select Year Groups or Houses from the left-hand menu.

Make sure you select the right year from the drop-down menu, then select the group you want to edit.
