Would you like to progress your career as a leader in a school with ambitious and polite students and the support of an experienced and friendly leadership team? 

Royal Liberty School is a small comprehensive, 11-16 school for boys, located close to Gidea Park Station, only 20 minutes from London Liverpool Street. We pride ourselves on our strong sense of community and the excellent behaviour of the students.

Our results have shown impressive improvement over the last 3 years with the majority of subjects consistently above national average; 

  • English 9-4 80%
  • Maths 9-4 85%
  • English and maths 9-4 76%

This improvement and success was recognised in the Havering Leadership Awards 2019 in which the school won 6 awards for most improved progress. This is as a result of hard work and dedication of all staff in the school.   Due to our increased popularity we expanded by one form of entry from 2018.

If you are an inspiring, inspirational, enthusiastic and innovative leader who recognises that the best leaders continually strive to improve, we would like to hear from you. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a forward thinking school and leadership team.
