The School

Wembley High is an ‘Outstanding School’ and has been one of the highest achieving schools in the country over the last few years. In 2018, 82% of pupils achieved grades 9 – 5 in English and maths GCSE and 76% achieved the English Baccalaureate. This led to a Progress 8 score of +1.90 which has been recognised as the highest in the country. We have a strong Sixth Form whose value added is high (0.41 – the highest in Brent) and prepares pupils for the next stage in education; last year, nearly all pupils left to attend higher education and over 50% of our pupils secured places at Russell Group universities. We have been recognised as one of the leading schools in the country for achievement of our disadvantaged pupils and firmly believe that all pupils, no matter what their background, can achieve highly to pursue their aspirations. 

The Role

Despite the exceptionally high achievement, we believe we can continue to improve outcomes and pupils’ life chances. We are looking for a Deputy Headteacher who has a track record of improving outcomes for their own classes and for others they line manage.  The post would suit candidates who have the intellectual ability to analyse accurately, implement sensitively and evaluate rigorously to ensure continued high outcomes at all levels. 

The successful candidate will be able to support the Headteacher and provide exceptional leadership to aspects of the school.  The school has a local and national reputation of excellence and the appointed candidate should be able to demonstrate their ability to secure internal outcomes and influence externally. Roles in the Leadership Team are matched to individual strengths and changed to meet the needs of the school. Exceptional and bespoke training opportunities will be provided for the post holder.
