Tradewind Principal Interviews - kickstart your career in the UK

St Mary's CE High School - Cheshunt, Hertfordshire

St Mary’s is an eight-form entry co‚Äźeducational, state of the art church school with academy status. In their last government inspection, St Mary’s was judged to be a ‘good’ school, where students ‘behave well and develop positive attitudes to learning’, and ‘achievement is improving because leaders effectively focus upon strengthening the quality of teaching.’

St Mary’s was also rated ‘Outstanding’ in their last SIAMS inspection, conducted by the Church of England. The school moved into new buildings for the start of the summer term in 2010. This has provided significantly improved facilities and an excellent space in which to work for staff and students alike.

The new facilities have brought many benefits to the learning community and in keeping with their Christian ethos, St Mary’s values its place at the centre of the community.

The school continues to have ambitious and exciting improvement plans that support their increasing recognition as a school of choice for local parents/carers.

The structure of staffing at St Mary’s has been adjusted and staff numbers increased to reflect the increasing student roll and drive to raise and secure standards.

The structure reflects a focus on the link between teaching, learning and progress allowing accountability for the care and progress of each individual student to be tracked and supported carefully. All new staff will be allocated a mentor/buddy who will help them to settle into St Mary’s and be their ‘go to’ person for every day questions. They will also have access to a comprehensive New Staff Induction Programme which runs for a term.

This supports new colleagues in many aspects of school life such as; analysing data, how to have structured conversations with students/parents and time saving marking strategies, to name but a few.

Colleagues will also have access to any external courses that are deemed to be supportive in helping the school to meet its improvement targets.

The School welcomes newly qualified teachers for the following vacancies from September 2018:

• Science Teacher (Physics)

• Science Teacher (Chemistry)

• Maths Teacher

• English Teacher
