A Vision of Queen Mary’s High School

Queen Mary’s High School is an outstanding girls’ grammar school with a reputation for the highest academic standards, as a school where the individual needs of highly able students are met and the development of the ‘whole person’ together with the enjoyment of learning lie at the heart of its ethos and culture.

Queen Mary’s High School also has a commitment and responsibility to its own community and communities locally, nationally and internationally.

Queen Mary’s is a school where students’ needs are met through the quality of teaching and learning, pastoral care and guidance and the breadth and richness of the curriculum, both formal and informal, which supports students with individual learning needs or particular talents. The achievements of everyone in the school community are celebrated. The quality of the school is clear through outside scrutiny, external awards and data comparison.

Queen Mary’s High School provision is further enhanced through being a founding member of the Mercian Trust which extends the opportunities available to its students in terms of both breadth of curriculum post-16 and also via a range of extra-curricular opportunities. In addition, staff benefit from development opportunities through collaboration with colleagues in partner schools.

The school has a leadership group which is forward-thinking and able to respond quickly and flexibly to change. It ensures that teaching methods are always developing and provides the best possible resources and physical environment for teaching and learning. The leadership group works with governors in order to evaluate its own performance and also to formulate the priorities for the school.

The high expectations for teaching and learning and positive relationships between staff, students and parents are clear in all induction procedures, staff development and performance management. Students receive consistently high-quality teaching and in return commit to the responsibilities of their school work and membership of the school community.

Staff receive the best possible working and employment conditions and career opportunities. Parents are supportive of the school’s ethos, systems and procedures and are kept fully informed about their child’s progress, feel comfortable to come in to school to meet with staff and are confident that the school is providing high quality learning experiences for their child.

Governors receive clarity and transparency about school matters and sufficient training and links with the school to ensure they are able to play their part in its strategic development. The school demonstrates its involvement with the wider community via support for local schools and organisations and a commitment to charity fund raising.

Finally, the school’s reputation, culture and family atmosphere are such that all who are connected with it are happy to continue an association with Queen Mary’s High School long after they have ceased to be connected with it on a daily basis.
