What skills and experience we're looking for

Queen Mary’s High School is a diverse, busy and happy school. Care for the individual lies at the heart of our provision. We are not a school where one size fits all, but we are a school in which diversity thrives, is encouraged and is celebrated. Whilst academic achievement is a key part of our school culture, we recognise that there is much more to learning than that which takes place in the classroom. Our students benefit from and enjoy a range of extra-curricular activities. This includes participation in our competitive House system, opportunities in sport, music and drama, residential trips and visits along with a range of other clubs and societies. We have a long and established tradition of educating the thinkers, doers and change makers of the future and have been doing so for over 125 years.

Queen Mary’s High School is a school which is proud of its heritage and tradition whilst simultaneously being committed to developing staff and students who are outward facing, innovative and ready to take on a challenge.

The successful candidate will work at both schools throughout the week, as reflected in the job description. We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, committed and inspirational Careers Leader and Advisor to build upon the already strong CEAIG provision in both of our schools. Experience in a grammar school setting is neither required not expected. The successful applicant will become part of a collaborative and supportive staff body at both school, who share a vision to realise and achieve ambitious outcomes for every individual in our schools.

Both Queen Mary’s High School and Queen Mary’s Grammar School are academically selective schools with a well-established tradition of educational excellence, supporting young people to achieve exceptional academic outcomes. Both schools recognise that there is far more to education than that which takes place within the classroom so offer a wealth of opportunities for students to develop their individuals interests and passions.

If you are, like us passionate about having a positive impact on young people’s lives, and excited by this opportunity to support exceptional young people, we warmly welcome your application.

What the school offers its staff


• A superb staff team committed to doing their absolute best for all in our school community.

• Support from our Trust central teams and other schools in our Trust to ensure you have the tools to deliver success (our schools are all located close to one another, and we work better when we are working together).

• A wealth of support for your ongoing continuing professional development, including a Trust-wide programme for teachers at all career stages, including an exceptional Early Career Teacher programme drawing on expertise from across the Mercian Trust.

• We offer a range of benefits to support our staff wellbeing including access to the employee’s assistance and benefits programme, our school fitness suite and a cycle to work scheme.

• There is never a dull moment; we never stand still, every day offers new challenges and opportunities within an ambitious, forward-thinking team.

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding at QMHS. Our school’s aims and vision statement very clearly states that we strive to ensure that the individual needs of all our highly able students are met. At QMHS and across the Mercian Trust we recognise that the emotional wellbeing and positive mental health of all members of the community is integral to our continued success. We have built and continue to strengthen a community of support for all stakeholders which includes pupils, staff and parents/carers.

Queen Mary’s High School is built upon a well established history of success, shaping exceptional young women for young adulthood. We are one of the top performing state schools in the country, consistently maintaining a high position nationally for GCSE and A Level outcomes. We were inspected by Ofsted in October 2022 and are proud to have been judged as Outstanding in all aspects of our provision.

Today, there are more opportunities for young women to succeed in society than there have ever been before and we firmly believe that there is no limit to the personal, social and academic achievement that is possible for each and every one of our students.

We are a school community passionate about learning and in cultivating an exceptional educational environment in which our young people are enabled to be the very best version of themselves. Our school community is one in which our students are expertly equipped with not only knowledge and understanding but the skills, the attributes and expertise to achieve their ambitions, and to fully realise their potential.

Support, care, and guidance for each young person is at our core and the Queen Mary’s High School values of responsibility, honesty, integrity, respect and tolerance underpin all that we as a school community stand for. We ask that parents help us in supporting their child in demonstrating these values each day, in school, at home and online. Only through working together in partnership will we ensure that we are all, together, incredibly proud of their achievements, progress and growth.
