The best-paid teaching jobs in west London have been revealed and very few local authority-run schools make the top 10, according to new data from the government's latest teacher census.

Academies and free schools seem to pay on average more than council-run schools with some paying north of £50,000 per teacher.

West London teachers looking for a pay rise should perhaps head to Westminster where a newly-founded free school pays its teaching staff an average £53,221 per annum.

Sir Simon Milton Westminster University Technical College (UTC) in Westminster only opened last year is among just 18 schools nationally where the average teacher earns more than £50,000 a year.


Saint Thomas More Language College in Kensington and Chelsea was the only other west London school in the study to pay teachers more than an average £50,000 per year.

These are the top 10 highest-paying schools in West London.
