St Mary’s Independent School relies on staff who are suitably qualified, are experienced and who are outstanding in their field.

We are privileged to be supported by a range of volunteers who bring additional skills and knowledge which enrich the experience of our pupils.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.  All successful candidates and volunteers will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.

This page is regularly updated with vacancies. As an independent school with pupils of many faiths and none, our vacancies are open to all to apply and to teachers who would enjoy and thrive in an environment where values are held high.
