High School

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to the Kingsbury High School website. I hope you find it informative and that it gives a snapshot of the exciting things happening at the school.

I am very proud to have been invited by the Governing Body to succeed Jeremy Waxman as Headteacher and have inherited a school with a strong understanding of the importance of values. This is 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 will 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.

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.  The way we are as a school is expressed through our PRIDE values:

Personal Excellence 

Respect and Friendship 


Determination and Courage


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, until recently, only experienced Kingsbury High School as a visitor I am able to say how welcoming and positive the students, governors and staff are and I can now encourage you to visit to see for yourself.
