Background information

Queen Mary's High School is close to Walsall town centre and as a selective girls' school draws its students from a very wide area including Walsall, Birmingham, Sandwell, Wolverhampton and Staffordshire. There are over 700 students on roll with 96 in each year group from Years 7 to 11 and with a Sixth Form in excess of 200, including a small number of boys. The school is heavily oversubscribed with nearly 800 applicants for places in Year 7 each year.

The school was founded in 1893 and has a mixture of late Victorian and modern buildings on a compact site.

Having been designated as a Language College and been awarded a second specialism in Mathematics and Computing it is clear that the school regards these subjects as areas of strength.  Now that specialisms as such no longer exist we have sought to use our experiences  in these fields to enhance our specialism in all subject areas with a particular focus on the use of innovative and effective teaching methods to nurture and develop Gifted and Talented students.

The school's last Ofsted inspection was March 2007 when the inspectors judged the school to be outstanding.   Since this time the high standards have been maintained and a further inspection has not yet been deemed necessary.

Awards

Queen Mary's was re-awarded International School status in 2010 in recognition of the position that internationalism continues to play in the school through both curricular and extra-curricular activities.   There is a clear commitment to maintaining the international ethos which has become embedded in the work of many departments and which also supports the languages curriculum.

Healthy School status was re-awarded in 2010.
