Welcome from the Head of Upper School

I’m delighted to welcome you to Preston Manor Upper School. It is our firm belief that all students can be successful irrespective of background or prior achievement through high levels of teaching and pastoral support.  GCSE results have been consistently positive for several years, giving our students great options for the next stages of their education.

As Headteacher of the Upper School, it is my role to create a safe environment where all students are ambitious for their future and to break down any barriers to learning. In living our values of Ambition, Responsibility and Excellence each day, the staff, students and parents will ensure the very highest of expectations are met in all that we do, ensuring that our young people go on to have great lives.
We want our students to complete their whole education journey at Preston Manor by joining Reception in our Lower School and staying with us through Year 12 and Year 13 in our thriving Sixth Form.
Since joining Preston Manor in September 2023, I have been taken aback by how warm and friendly a community it is, and I look forward to watching our students grow academically, culturally and confidently; able to pursue the careers they are passionate about and contribute positively to society.

If you already have a child at our school our website is a great source of information about all aspects of school life. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school by calling us on 020 8385 4040 or emailing us on  

We are proud to serve our community in Brent and are here to support you and your child every step of the way.
