Introduction

First of all, let me take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in coming to work at Canons High School. The recruitment of wonderful people who blossom at the school as highly effective teachers, members of the support team and school leaders is one of our strengths, and it starts with someone like you, reading this and recognising that there is something special about Canons. It starts with someone like you believing that you can contribute to that special something.

Canons is a proudly multicultural British community, located in Edgware in North West London (just a short walk from Queensbury station on the Jubilee tube line) in the borough of Harrow. In recent years we have grown significantly.

Our sixth form is very popular and extremely successful in getting students to the next stage of their career of education pathway. In 2010 we accepted our first cohort of Year 7 students, bringing our total numbers of students to nearly 1250. With this growth we were able to recruit a number of new, highly motivated colleagues to supplement the extremely stable, well-established and successful staffroom we already had.

Subsequently, financial strength has been assured and many leadership opportunities have arisen within the school and beyond.  Canons has gained a strong reputation as a school that does things well and does things right.
