Wembley High Technology College (also known as WHTC) is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status, situated in Brent, a borough situated in Greater London, England.

Formerly called East Lane County Secondary school since 1934, then Wembley High School from 1979, Wembley High Technology College was established in 2003 and is a popular and heavily oversubscribed secondary school. Gill Bal is the current and most known headteacher of Wembley High[citation needed]. Thanks to her leadership Wembley High has been transformed into an 'Outstanding' School (Ofsted 2008) and has, for the third year running, gained one of the top results in Brent. Its Chair of Governors is Councillor Ruth Moher, and the school's ward is located at Northwick Park.

The college has recently improved facilities, adding a new science block, several astroturf pitches (2008) a new hall (2009), and a sixth form block (2011). The school converted to academy status in August 2012.


The current headteacher, Ms Gill Bal, was awarded the 2008 Brent Service Recognition Award in recognition of service improvement and transformation and was nominated for the Woman of the Year Leadership Award. She has been a significant factor in the college's improvement in recent years. She was appointed an OBE for Services to Education.
