What the school says...

Drayton Manor High School in West London is a handsome, red-brick building built in the 1930s on the site of Hanwell Park House, land that had been previously owned by the then local historian, Sir Montague Sharpe.

The school first opened as a grammar school, then becoming a comprehensive in 1973, grant-maintained in 1992 and a Foundation School in 1998. In 2004 the school’s Head, Sir Pritpal Singh (knighted in 2005 in the Queen’s birthday Honours for services to education) was recognised as the Headteacher of the Year for London and the school was named in the Chief Inspector’s Report to Parliament as an outstanding school. The last OFSTED report described Sir Pritpal as having ‘a strong, clear vision’ and someone who had ‘successfully established an outstanding ethos in the school.’

The school received academy status in August 2011 and today provides an education for almost 1,600 students aged 11–19. It prides itself on its high academic standards and excellence across the board.
