Walsall, West Midlands, England, WS4 2AE

NOR: 792

Queen Mary's High School is an 11 to 18 selective girls' grammar school with around 890 students. This number is set to rise to in excess of 990 in 2025 due to an increase in PAN from 120 to 150 in 2019. There are a small number of male students in the sixth form.

Since the school's successful bid for funding from the Selective Schools Expansion Fund (SSEF), it has been able to increase its PAN and to engage in outreach to the local community with the aim of increasing the number of local disadvantaged children being admitted to the school. This, together with the inclusion of a lower qualifying score for disadvantaged local children, has resulted in the average percentage of disadvantaged students admitted to the school in Years 7-9 being 28% with the aim of this rising to 30% for the whole school over time.

Located in the heart of Walsall, Queen Mary's High School has been educating young women since it was founded in 1893. We are a busy, friendly and energetic school with a distinctive family-oriented ethos, a positive culture and an ambition for success. We draw our students from a wide area including Walsall, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Sandwell and Staffordshire.

A building project is underway which will provide five additional teaching spaces as well as an additional science laboratory. On a compact site, space is at a premium and additional teaching rooms have been provided through the creative use of current areas.

Our aim is to enable each student to achieve excellence in all aspects of their life and in order to achieve this we:
• Provide opportunities for each students to achieve the highest possible standards
• Inspire a love of learning for its own sake
• Foster self-esteem and sensitivity to the needs of others
• Develop an appreciation of our cultural heritage
• Equip each student to take a responsible place in society

Queen Mary's High School is seeking a Headteacher who will not be satisfied just to maintain its Outstanding judgment, but seek to improve further, ensuring that every aspect of the school's provision meets the exacting standards that are described in the latest inspection framework.
