Job Vacancies

We have a very low staff turnover at St Mary’s, but occasionally we are in the position to invite suitably qualified individuals to join our friendly, close-knit team.

Vacancies are advertised here as they arise.

St Mary’s is a happy, high achieving independent day school for girls aged 3-16 years and boys aged 3-4 years, a member of both the Girls’ Schools Association and Independent Association of Preparatory Schools.

School Governors

We are currently looking to recruit new governors to broaden the depth and expertise of our Governing Body. We presently have Governors from a range of disciplines who enthusiastically devote some of their spare time to help make St Mary’s the fantastic school that it is.

We would particularly welcome applicants with a background in property, health or human resources, although we would gladly consider applicants from any professional background who are able to offer us some of their time.

Whilst we do not have Parent Governors at St Mary’s, many of our Governors (past and present) have had daughters at the school, or indeed have been pupils themselves!
