Working with Us

WAS website badgeMaking the decision to apply for a role in any organisation is an important one. At Kingsbury High School we really do care about our staff and recognise that having a clear commitment to them, their career and day-to-day experience working is vital to our colleagues feeling happy, fulfilled and worthwhile. As Headteacher, I understand that this commitment starts from the top. Our values and ethos are interwoven into everything we do and the Kingsbury Way explicitly references Respect for self and Respect for Others. I hope this comes across clearly in our website and literature.

Kingsbury High School is the holder of the Wellbeing Award for Schools (2024-27).

Some of what we do for staff is referenced below.
