Brentside High School is a highly regarded, coeducational foundation secondary school and sixth form in West London, England, situated on the border between Hanwell and Greenford in the London Borough of Ealing. The school caters to students aged 11 to 19 and there are no boarding facilities. The current Headteacher is Ms Charlotte Hames.

With a community of about 1,670 students, Brentside High School provides a vibrant learning environment based on a philosophy of 'Learning and achieving together.' This ethos is further reinforced by the school's House System, which includes divisions in Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue. The school's motto, "Learning and achieving together," underpins its commitment to fostering talent and inspiring each student to achieve their full potential.

GCSE outcomes at Brentside High School have been noticeably above the national average for the past ten years, and achievement is strong across A Levels and vocational BTEC qualifications. Furthermore, the school's care, guidance, and support for students consistently receive high praise, which is reflected in its exceptional Ofsted report. This commitment to excellence is demonstrated by Brentside High School's 'no exceptions, no excuses' ethos.

The school's purpose-built facility, opened in September 2004, was designed by architects Seymour Harris. Brentside High School is currently undergoing an expansion project to introduce purpose-built Sixth Form facilities, improved post-16 study areas, and a fitness suite.
