Opportunities for further professional development are offered both in-house and through our membership of the Harrow Collegiate Teaching Schools Alliance and Brent Schools Partnership.

Prospective candidates are welcome to come and look around the school to see for yourself what makes Kingsbury High different. As a large 12 form entry 11-18 split site school we are situated in an inner London location, but with an out of London feel – surrounded by parkland with large playing fields and great local amenities, excellent transport links to enable easy access from central London and fringe areas. Our school is truly diverse in its makeup, whilst united as one family working to achieve the best for all our students. 

The Faculty

The Faculty is incredibly successful at both GCSE and A-level, with large classes for both A-level English Literature and Language; 85% of our students are predicted to achieve A*-C in English Language this year.  The Faculty also includes the Media Studies Department which is a popular A-level choice. We have always been innovative with the range of courses we have offered students and have often favoured early entry in GCSE English Language. The successful candidate would be empowered to develop a flexible curriculum that meets the needs of our students and is supported by TLR holders at all key stages.
