    Recruiting Differently

    At Mercia School we recruit differently. We believe in early appointments and work hard to create an environment where staff morale is high and staff turnover is rare.

    We want to hear from teachers who believe in the education Mercia School offers. 

    Our vacancies will be advertised on the TES, school social media and on this page (see below). Additionally, we will directly email any person that wishes to be on our distribution list for recruitment. Please email enquiries@merciaschool.com if you wish to be added to this list.

    For September 2021, we are likely to recruit the following positions:

    • Teacher of English
    • Teacher of Mathematics
    • Teacher of Science
    • Teacher of French
    • Teacher of Physical Education
    • Teacher of Art and Design
    • Teacher of Religious Education 
    • Teacher of Computer Science

    Quick Apply 

    Mercia School is in a stage of rapid growth and expansion. We currently have Year 7, 8 and 9 and are moving towards recruitment with GCSEs and A-levels in mind. This means there will be plenty of opportunities to work with us, seize promotions and develop professionally. 

    Please read our Are We Right For You? page before applying. 

    Please use the ‘Quick Apply’ online form below to register your interest in the role you have seen advertised. Once submitted, the form will be sent to the school for consideration.
