High School

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to the Kingsbury High School website.  I hope you enjoy reading about all the exciting things happening at our school.  We aim to provide clear relevant information for all, please let us know if there is anything missing or contact us if you want to know more.

Since joining as Headteacher in the summer of 2019, I have enjoyed being part of the Kingsbury High School community.  It is a school with many strengths and a long history of success.  There is a keen understanding of the importance of values and a sense of tradition, encapsulated by the School motto, spectemur agendo.  It dates back to the founding of our predecessor school, the Kingsbury County, in the 1920s, and it is Latin for, “let us be judged by our actions”.  As Headteacher I seek to lead the school with this at the heart.

Students at Kingsbury High School gain excellent examination results in both GCSE and across the Sixth Form and Ofsted recently rated the school as “good”. Equally, the school is very proud of the way it has achieved these outcomes and the rounded education it offers to its students.  We recognise our place in the community and are a key part of the partnership, Kingsbury Schools Together.    

A great school is a combination of different things.  We are equally proud of the many opportunities we provide for our students beyond the curriculum and how we develop students as individuals ready for adult life. Our aim is to develop in all of our students the love of learning, intellectual curiosity, skills and qualities of character needed to become successful, happy and engaged members of society. Our key values are: Integrity; Respect; Responsibility; Resilience; and Aspiration. Through these, we aim to combine both academic success and the development of the broader aspects of each student’s character.

I hope that whatever the reason you have chosen to look at our website, as a member of the school community, a prospective parent, student or member of staff, or are simply taking an interest from afar, you find what you are looking for.

Having come through a very difficult last couple of years for the country and all schools, we hope that the future will be more settled.  I have been incredibly impressed with the way our students and staff have coped with the pandemic and know that we can build upon some of the new ways we’ve had to work and still rely upon the strengths we have always had as a school. I can now, once again, encourage you to visit to see these for yourself.
