    Mercia School was Sheffield's most oversubscribed school in 2022-23 and 2023-24. We are proud to serve the south-west of the city and value our positive community relationships. We look forward to welcoming prospective pupils and scholars this Autumn. 

    Mercia School achieved a truly exceptional set of GCSE grades in August 2023 - the hard work of our pupils and staff paid off.  Some of the headline figures are: 

    • 60% of all grades were Grade 7 - 9 
    • 90% of pupils achieved Grade 5-9 in both English and Maths 
    • 97% of all pupils achieved Grade 4-9 in both English and Maths 
    • 20% of all grades were Grade 9

    Pupil progress data will be available in November 2023 - we very much look forward to sharing it with you. All groups of pupils, including our SEND and disadvantaged cohorts, have made exceptional progress since they started at Mercia School.

    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 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. Candidates who meet the requirements of the role will be invited to visit the school and asked to complete our full application form prior to the shortlisting process.

  • Meeting the Parents…

    Published 09/07/18

    Meeting the parents can be a daunting prospect, in any scenario! Parents and families all want the best for their children and therefore have a certain right to question, challenge and ensure they are happy with those involved in the care of their children. The initial meetings between families and a new secondary school is an incredibly important starting point for navigating the journey ahead, and it’s been a privilege to start that journey with our new Mercia families these last few weeks.
