Harlington Upper School

Who's Who
Below you will find a list of all the teachers at HUS - please click on their names if you wish to email them.


I have been a science teacher for more than 30 years and Headteacher at Harlington Upper School since April 2003. Since joining the school we have undertaken a complete rebuilding programme, developed a curriculum second to none and have seen exam results steadily rise to be the best in the local area. However, I am most proud of the wonderful sense of community we have in our school, which has provided the basis for our sustained high standards and the enjoyment of school life for students and staff alike.
It has been a pleasure throughout my time at Harlington to appoint and work with a number of senior colleagues. I would therefore like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Senior Leadership Team. They will work with me to take our already very good school even further and for us to become an outstanding school.
Please contact me about any aspect of the school:Mr S Fell

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 six House 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.

          Teaching & Learning

I am a history teacher and Lead Examiner and joined Harlington after working as Head of Year in a local Hertfordshire school. My main responsibility as Assistant Headteacher is to develop Teaching and Learning across the school. I also lead our Able, Gifted and Talented programme. I therefore work with teachers and students to identify the best possible approaches to learning and embed them in all lessons.
Teaching is recognised as being very good at Harlington and my aim is to ensure it becomes outstanding.
