St Mark’s School believes that everyone is uniquely created by God. We provide opportunities to recognise our gifts that He has freely given to us.
Our caring, nurturing community fosters the growth of Christian values through following Jesus’ Golden Rule.
‘So in everything, do to others as you would have them do to you.’
Building on this firm foundation, allows us to flourish, support one another in reaching our individual potential and encourages us as life-long learners.
'The pupils are vibrant and exceptional exemplars of the school's vision, showing love and respect to each other, to every member of the school family and to visitors.'

Our School’s Aims
The school has a very strong Christian ethos. Christian values are explicit and deeply embedded in the daily life of the school. All members of the school community can articulate these values and understand the significant impact they have on the achievement of learners. School leaders ensure that pupils have valuable opportunities for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils’ behaviour is excellent both in lessons and around the school. Pupils say they feel safe in school, attitudes to learning are positive, they show persistence and try their very best.
