Leadership Team

Miss G Speller

Director of Sixth Form

It is without doubt the greatest job in the world to lead the Sixth Form here at WLFS; to watch the students grow and become rounded, young adults, and to ensure that they have the best possible experience with us, and leave us with the best possible chances at the end of their two years. I look forward to getting to know you all.

Miss Speller is responsible for the day-to-day academic delivery of teaching and learning and provides a critical point of contact for parents and students who wish to discuss issues and progress. Miss Speller is also a linguist with a specialism in French.

Miss Speller read French & German at Bristol University, focusing particularly on the politics and history of the two countries. She then completed her teacher training at Oxford University before heading to work in Camden. For the last 5 years she has been Head of Sixth Form, where, amongst other things, she developed partnerships with international businesses in the local area, to the great benefit of the students.

Mr V Tamizian

Deputy Head of Sixth Form (Academic) and Head of UCAS

The support we provide in helping prepare students for their university applications is second to none in my opinion. Every student gets the individual attention they deserve whether they want to go for a high-end apprenticeship or a top university.  If you are a member of our Scholars Programme you will be guided and supported to success in your Oxbridge, Medicine, and related specialist applications. 

Mr Tamizian supports students through the Sixth Form application process, helping them make decisions about which A Levels are most appropriate for them, bearing in mind their longer term plans. He is also responsible for providing support and guidance on all aspects of academic study, including the critical choice on which university course or apprenticeship to apply for. Mr Tamizian also teaches A Level History.

Mr Tamizian graduated with an MA in history from Clare College, Cambridge, where he also completed his PGCE and a Masters in Education.

Ms R Owen 

Head of Year 13

Starting sixth form is an exciting time in a young person’s life. My role is to make sure our students get the most out of their experience by offering pastoral support. Pupils can seek me out whenever they have questions or worries and I’ll help myself or point them in the direction of someone who can.

Ms Owen offers guidance and support to all Year 13 students and also teaches A Level Divinity.

Ms Owen graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in social anthropology and comparative religion. She taught for two years at a school in Croydon where she completed the Teach First programme before taking up a teaching post in Wembley. Prior to joining West London Free School, Ms Owen spent two years living in Spain and working in Gibraltar.  

In her spare time, Ms Owen enjoys studying Spanish and hiking.

Miss L Jones

Head of Year 12

As Head of Year 12, I provide pastoral support to students. Year 12 is a potentially stressful time for both students and parents settling into new routines, and I provide an initial point of contact to access guidance and advice. 

Miss Jones offers guidance and support to all Year 12 students and also teaches A Level Biology.

Miss Jones graduated from The University of Sheffield with a Bachelor’s degree in Medical Biochemistry. During her time at university she spent a summer holiday in China teaching in an English language school, which inspired her to pursue a career in teaching. Upon graduating she completed a PGDE (Biology) and Masters in Educational Practice at Liverpool John Moore’s University, with a research focus of equality within education.

Aside from teaching science, Miss Jones has a passion for travelling, trialling new recipes and generally keeping active.
