Dear Applicant

Mercia School is a growing 11-18 school that serves the south-west of Sheffield. The school opened in September 2018 and will grow incrementally until we offer A-level in 2023. Mercia School is a traditional school, following the practices of the very best schools in the country. We strive for social mobility and achievement for all.

Mercia School provides all pupils, no matter their background or starting point, a rich and demanding education that inspires them to go on to a top university or a viable alternative. Mercia School is different. The curriculum is academic with a focus on acquisition of knowledge at its heart. Pupils receive high levels of challenge in their studies.

We passionately believe in promoting the arts, sport, languages and STEM through our thriving elective programme, as part of our extended school day. These experiences coupled with our curriculum, broaden our pupils’ horizons. The character traits our children present are very important to us. Therefore, we give our pupils the opportunities to show commitment, determination, resilience and independence, whilst expecting them to be kind and compassionate to one another. Our children open doors for one another, they say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ They address teachers with respect. During Family Lunch, they serve one another and show appreciation and gratitude. This is all part of the Mercia way.

I expect that teachers teach from the front with excellent subject knowledge. Our classrooms are arranged in rows with pupils learning things by heart. We value our teachers’ passion for developing their specialism by ensuring they have time and energy to be reflective of their teaching. A whole school team approach to improving practice ensures we have high levels of consistency, which allows us to drill down to the minutiae that matter.

Underpinning our ethos is a dedication to high expectations. ‘We sweat the small stuff,’ because we care about our pupils. The little things matter and make the difference in our quest for all our children to be a success in their life. As a result, behaviour at the school is of the highest standard.

As Headteacher, I am excited about the start we have made and I am delighted with the team we have assembled thus far. It is imperative that I continue to build an excellent team of teaching and support staff that are fully committed to building a world-class school for our community.

You will love working with pupils and families, building strong relationships to ensure we deliver a phenomenal education. Your role will include immersing yourself with the wider staff body and being part of the school community. All support staff at Mercia School interact with children and add capacity to deliver a safe, warm environment.

If this letter has filled you with excitement, I look forward to receiving your application.
