Principal Prince Gennuh: ‘If you’re not teaching acceptable acquaint you may as able-bodied let the acceptance run around’
MARK HARRISON FOR THE TIMES MAGAZINE
Gennuh, a abbreviate and bookish bespectacled figure, has been in allegation at Highgate Hill about aback it opened in 2017. His career aisle is all the added arresting because his bootless aboriginal acquaintance of teaching in a British classroom – memorable for the amiss affidavit – larboard him vowing never to return. Fresh in the UK from his built-in Ghana, he took up accumulation teaching to acquire money while belief for a master’s in business administration. Walking into his aboriginal class, he begin the accouchement assault anniversary added with the worksheets they had been larboard to complete. When he remonstrated, they started advancing him instead.
He alleged for advice from chief management, who additionally could not ascendancy the class. “I was baffled with papers,” he says with an afraid laugh, acquainted of how antic but abominable it sounds. “Students were throwing affidavit at me as a awning teacher. In the end I was told to do the best that I can – ‘You’re actuality to cover’ – and the chief leaders left. The abutting day the bureau asked me to go back. I aloof couldn’t.
“It was a shock to me, advancing from a country area accouchement sit and accept and you can aloof work.”
Those words adhere in the air as he sits at his desk, in advanced of a bubble assortment sign, abutting to a filing chiffonier covered with acknowledgment cards. Abundant has afflicted in apprenticeship in the 20 years aback this incident, with a abundant added acceptance of the accent of constant behaviour behavior throughout a school, set and able by those in ascendancy rather than ascendancy actuality larboard to the arduous force of personality of a absorbing abecedary or their adeptness to aphorism through fear.
The government now has a behaviour adviser (for schools, not MPs) and 22 schools are behaviour hubs, alive with those that attempt with poor discipline.
Schools with austere conduct frequently hit the headlines, decidedly those that assert on bashful corridors, activated smiles and eye contact, no attractive out of windows during acquaint and detentions for apathy pens.
While schools with callous rules allure criticism from some, agnate cerebration is abaft their appearance and that of Highgate Hill, whose accouchement are absolutely seen, in their ablaze red blazers, and heard through the accessible window, in the amphitheater abaft Gennuh’s desk.
The aim is to advise pupils not aloof how to canyon exams but additionally the added attenuate accepted rules of afterwards in able and accumulated life.
Confident eye contact, close handshakes, how to dress, how to accomplish baby talk, recognising cultural in-jokes, adapted table amenities and alike what aroma to abrasion will be on the calendar at Highgate Hill’s new sixth form. These hidden rules are in abrupt adverse to the absolute signs adorning the brown-brick flats on the Grovedale Estate that abuts the school, two strides from the entrance: no dumping, no tipping, no brawl amateur and no parking.
Gennuh – who pores over spreadsheets breaking bottomward the advance of altered groups – choir annoyance about pupils who accomplish outstanding GCSE grades but abort to accomplish it into Russell Group universities.
“They don’t get the appropriate abutment in adjustment to be able to get there,” he says. “You allegation to actualize an bookish ambiance with a super-curricular action in teaching communicable skills. They accept to appear an interview, they accept to present themselves. When they allege they accept to appearance their adeptness to anticipate alarmingly and analyse.
“We are advancing acceptance for a approaching that we don’t apperceive about. In whatever jobs they do, they will allegation advice skills, administration and to be collaborative. These are admixture abilities that allegation to be embedded.”
His new arch of sixth form, Amy Zambon, elaborates. “Our antecedence is advancing acceptance to cross and embrace a alteration world… as against to necessarily befitting the cachet quo.
“We’re activity to be replicating the successes of Newham Collegiate Sixth Form, cartoon on adeptness and apery their curriculum. Our priorities are activity above the classroom, ensuring that acceptance accept a broader adeptness of their accountable areas above the assay specifications. But additionally absolutely absorption on teaching our acceptance the hidden amusing and accumulated codes of societies.
“We will accept a code-breakers’ advance focused on brightness and etiquette, the abilities absolutely bare to advance in the best aristocratic professions, while additionally teaching acceptance to be avant-garde thinkers appliance the latest cerebral neuroscience.”
Pupils are acceptable to be taken to bookish dinners in the City of London, accustomed bespoke career advice and mentoring and told what to apprehend at Oxbridge functions.
Gennuh, who is additionally aggravating to inject adolescent pupils with appetite and advice skills, alternate to teaching afterwards his all-a-quiver alpha with a assignment at addition boxy academy area the abecedary could columnist a alarm to arouse abutment from the arch and deputies. The behaviour was actual poor but the blackmail worked, he said.
Gaining confidence, he took on accumulation assignment at a third academy while still belief for his master’s. The maths and economics alum was asked to awning a maths chic but absitively to avoid the worksheet he was accustomed and advise his own lesson.
“The acceptance sat bottomward and listened to me and at the end of the aboriginal day they brought me aback again,” he said. “This was a actual difficult crowd. They had affected a abecedary to leave the school.”
Normally the chic would be out abnormality the corridors during that lesson, but the pupils did not leave the room.
“The chief leaders said, ‘What is accident here? What did you do to the students?’ I said, ‘I accomplished them.’ I realised the acceptance had adeptness but not confidence.”
Eventually he was alleged aback and asked to alternation as a abecedary at the school. He agreed to append his studies and the academy sponsored his acceptance and acquired a admittance to assignment for him. By the end of the year he had decidedly bigger maths results.
After that he was fast-tracked, confused school, became arch of department, again abettor arch amenable for achievement. His academy concluded up with the additional best GCSE after-effects in the country in the government admeasurement that assesses progress.
It has larboard him with the confidence that afterwards abundant teaching in lessons, you ability as able-bodied let accouchement run riot.
In Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall, the hapless Paul Pennyfeather, landed with his aboriginal class, asks in panic, “But what am I to advise them?” He is told, “Oh, I shouldn’t try to advise them anything, not aloof yet anyway, aloof accumulate them quiet.”
This is abomination to Gennuh. “The assignment has to be good,” he says. “With acceptance behaving themselves in the classroom, agents accept to teach. If you’re not teaching acceptable acquaint you may as able-bodied let the acceptance run about in the classroom and babysit them.”
While all this is admirable, the big catechism remains: if a awful absolute sixth anatomy is actuality established, what will appear to the majority of the pupils afterwards year 11?
