Mount St Mary's Catholic High School

The Governors and Headteacher at Mount St Mary’s Catholic High School are determined to recruit talented individuals who share the school’s vision to provide outstanding Catholic inclusive education.  We seek dynamic and ambitious leaders to join our vibrant and highly committed staff to lead on the Quality of Education and Personal Development, Behaviour and Attitudes.  Does this sound like you?

Mount St Mary’s is a successful and oversubscribed inner city school located in the very heart of the city of Leeds. Drawing from three of the four compass points the school flourishes in an atmosphere of engagement and aspiration drawing hugely upon the experiences of our incredibly diverse community.

Belief, education, aspiration and continuous learning are at the core of all that we do.  We believe that all our students and staff have limitless potential and it is our responsibility to unlock this and ensure it is realised by all in our care.

Recent inspections describe us as a joyful place, with an authentic mission…clearly embraced by all the school community and forges a passion… for desiring to give back. Leaders have developed a nurturing school, one in which there is a strong sense of responsibility towards each other. We have a well established reputation for our care, guidance and support ensuring all learners are provided with a high level of structure and personalised development.

In April 2019 the school underwent a Section 48 Inspection gaining an overall judgement of Good with Outstanding.  The report comments “Students are polite, confident and respectful in the way they treat each other and interact with staff and visitors.  They are .. highly articulate and proud of their school and their personal achievements.  Behaviour in school is excellent and a strength of the school as it reflects its Catholic character.”

Our recent 2019 OFSTED Inspection graded our school as ‘Good’ in all areas.  We have a well established reputation for our care, guidance and support, nurtured by our faith ethos, ensuring all learners are afforded a high level of structure and personalised development, recognised within our Ofsted report.  All students can access extra curricular activities beyond the school day, be that of a sporting nature, academic, performing arts or public speaking.  This is an area we value highly and continue to see growth in.
