Job Description

Welcome to St Mary’s School. We have been educating girls from Colchester and the surrounding areas since 1908 and as such have built a very strong reputation within our local community. Throughout this time the school has grown in size and is now located on two sites. The Senior School is close to the town centre whilst the Lower School and Kindergarten enjoy a more rural location.

St Mary’s is a happy and thriving school and we are proud of each and every one of our pupils. We are proud of our diverse student population and we are passionate to create a team of staff and governors reflective of this diversity.

The Senior Leadership Team at St Mary’s is small and the positive and collective vision of the team has ensured the success of the school.
Throughout its 110-year history, St Mary’s has benefited from the support and guidance of a highly committed Governing Body, which works with the School’s Senior Leadership Team to ensure that St Mary’s continues to provide a high quality education and a happy learning environment.

The Board of Governors comprises a combination of professionals, business leaders, members of the local community, former students and the parents of former students, all of whom bring individual skills, insights and experience.

We are looking to recruit new members to St Mary’s Board of Governors, so if you are able to offer your expertise or know of someone who may be interested in the role, please contact our Clerk to the Governors using the details provided on the Application Process page of the Governor Recruitment Pack.

St Mary’s is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All candidates must be willing to undergo child protection screening.
