Headteacher – St Mary’s Catholic College
Location: Wallasey, Wirral
Contract Type: Full Time
Contract Term: Permanent
Start Date: Negotiable
‘We believe that a child’s start in life need not determine their future.’
St Mary’s Catholic College is an 11-18 non-selective Catholic voluntary academy located in Wallasey on the breath-taking Wirral, a short distance from Liverpool city centre.
St Mary’s is part of Holy Family Catholic Multi Academy Trust, comprising five schools. The Trust, along with Saint John Plessington Catholic College lead ‘Inspire Learning Teaching School Hub” across Wirral and Liverpool.
Although there is much to celebrate at St Mary’s, the school has faced a number of challenges culminating in a third RI judgement in October 2019.
And yet, there is a genuine conviction that with the right leadership St Mary’s can quickly be set on the right path, with the active support of a loyal and passionate school, MAT and flourishing parish community to draw upon.
We are interested in having preliminary, confidential conversations with Catholic school leaders who have the gift for leadership and believe profoundly in the transformative role of Catholic education to improve the lives of others and how to make that a reality.
For an existing Headteacher this could be the next big challenge you seek …or equally the role may appeal to an experienced Deputy Head and still yet untapped potential. Either way, you will be ably supported by a capable SLT and MAT team.
A requirement of the post is that applicants must be practising Catholics.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a school and MAT which believes in the power of education and knows that outcomes mean much more than data – and with a mission to develop individual excellence, embrace opportunities and build strong communities with Gospel Values at the heart.

Our school is an equal opportunities employer and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. DBS check required.
