Don't know about SSRS, but it is possible in the T-SQL data set that feeds it by using the SQL Server NTILE() function.   (SQL 2012 and higher)
SELECT ID, Department, Average, 
    NTILE(5) OVER(ORDER BY Average DESC) AS Quintile
FROM YourTable

afaik there is not an SSRS expression that handles percentiles.   Just out of curiosity, why is your requirement to do this in an SSRS expression?  Data manipulation is best done in the database layer (database) and not the presentation layer (reporting), and if the data source has embedded T-SQL you can just add the NTILE function.
