  • Welcome from the Head Teacher - from a work prospective 

Thank you for showing an interest in working at Park High School. 

Park High is an 11-18 mixed multi-ethnic comprehensive school of almost 1600 students, situated in the London Borough of Harrow. There are very high achievement levels and excellent facilities. Ofsted (2013) judged the school outstanding.

Park High School is a fantastic place to work and develop as a teacher. 

We are looking for staff who share our passion for learning and our determination to change lives through the education we provide.

If you are a genuinely passionate and committed teacher who wants to work in a school where teaching is a pleasure, and in a school that puts learning at the heart of all it does, then we look forward to receiving your application. 

Mrs Colette O'Dwyer
