    Headteacher

    I am delighted to have been appointed the Head of Harlington Upper School as of September 2020.  My previous role was as a Deputy Head in a very large and highly successful school in London where I worked for 9 years. I am incredibly lucky to have a highly committed and capable staff body to work with here, and I am really looking forward to collaborating with all stakeholders to continue this wonderful school’s progress towards becoming a genuinely outstanding learning community:

    Mrs H Harris

    Deputy Headteacher

    I have been Deputy Headteacher at Harlington since September 2014 having previously worked in a very different community in Peterborough for eleven years. My main area of responsibility at Harlington is to oversee all aspects of pastoral care working alongside the Year Leaders and their teams. I am the lead Safeguarding Officer for the school and strive to make sure that all students are safe, happy and well cared for. A particularly enjoyable part of my role is to work with colleagues and families to ensure that students joining us in year 9 are supported during the transition process so that they are able to make a confident start as soon as they arrive. Please contact me about any Student Support issues: Mrs G Billin

    Business Manager

    After a career in banking I joined Harlington in 2006, taking responsibility for financial matters and the business functions of our large upper school.
    As an Academy this includes managing support staff and helping to ensure we use our resources to best support students and their achievement. I also help manage our PFI-project site and buildings.
    Please contact me about any Financial or Business related matters: Mrs M Boyle

    Assistant Headteachers  

    KS5 Achievement

    I joined Harlington in 2013 as Assistant Headteacher responsible for leading Teaching and Learning having previously been a Head of Year and teacher of History in Hitchin. Teaching was highlighted as a clear strength of the school in the most recent Ofsted and we are incredibly proud of student outcomes.  Real interests for me have been around developing effective differentiation, student resilience, Blooms Taxonomy and Independence. From September 2019, I am now responsible for leading on Achievement at Key Stage Five. This is an incredibly exciting and rewarding job with a Sixth Form approaching 300 in number. Through high quality teaching and learning and enrichment opportunities, we aim to develop knowledge, skills and confidence that will support and inform our students as they prepare for their respective future pathways.

    The Sixth Form is recognised as being very good at Harlington and my aim is to make it outstanding.

    Please contact me about any aspect of Sixth Form: Mr T Southall

     

     

    SENDCO

    I joined Harlington as SENDCo in January 2018. I have previously worked in a very different community as SENDCo in London. My main responsibility is to ensure that all students with Special Education Needs and/ or Disabilities are given the support they need to fulfil their potential. Working alongside pupils, parents and all staff members I aim to create an inclusive environment; where barriers to learning are reduced and all students are supported to achieve their ambitions.

    Please contact me about anything in relation to Special Educational Needs and/ or Disability:

    Miss A Martin

    Assistant Headteacher KS4 Progress, Assessment and Reporting.

    I have been a Science Teacher for over 20 years and joined Harlington Upper School in 2014 having previously been an Assistant Principal in a large Secondary Academy in Luton.

    In my current role as Assistant Headteacher, I am responsible for KS4 Progress, Assessment and Reporting. Alongside this, I am also the Careers Leader managing the Careers provision to provide students with every opportunity to fulfil their potential and to equip them with the knowledge, skills and information to make the transition to the next stage of their educational journey.

    Assistant Headteacher Teaching and Learning

    I joined Harlington in 2007 from a high-performing school in Kettering, Northamptonshire, as Lead Teacher in English, working across Harlington, Arnold and Parkfields schools. In 2010, I became Head of Faculty and I was proud to build a successful team, who consistently brought about the best English results the school has achieved. Now as Assistant Headteacher, with a remit of Teaching and Learning, I look forward to supporting and developing further the excellent practice of our experienced teams of subject experts informed by an evaluation of educational research and relevant ideas from cognitive science.
