We have excellent resources and laboratories within the science faculty.  Science has a high profile at Kingsbury as not only are sciences popular option choices at KS4, but also results are good and strong links are enjoyed with other schools in our Trust, local universities and with a whole host of enrichment groups.

You will be joining Kingsbury School at an exciting time as we are part of Castle Phoenix Trust and are very proud of our good Ofsted outcome.  Being part of a Multi Academy Trust, and its associated teaching school, facilitates an opportunity to further develop our strategies to continue to invest in and develop our staff and, most importantly, bring about the best possible outcomes for our students who deserve the very best.

Every day will be different and we will play to your strengths.  We have a strong commitment to staff wellbeing and recognition through our wellbeing committee and people strategy, and offer a range of benefits which include the local government pension scheme, cycle to work, discounted gym membership, free parking and an employee discount scheme.
