The curriculum: The curriculum at St Mark’s is designed to fulfil the school’s vision to inspire students to achieve their goals and be a force for good both in school and the world beyond. Academic and vocational qualifications are the cornerstone of educational success at St Mark’s and we have a curriculum offer that enables learners at all levels to achieve their personal best. We create young adults ready for the world of work, possessing the skills and personal qualities to become healthy, resilient individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

Extra curricular activities: There is a remarkable range of additional activities organised by staff and relished by pupils to extend their learning and enrich their life experiences, in order that they achieve their personal best. At St Mark’s, your child will be encouraged to identify and nurture their individual talents. They will have the opportunity to develop independence and leadership qualities that will prepare them for success in later life by undertaking a variety of activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

Pastoral care: St Mark’s has an outstanding reputation for supporting students through their educational journey and providing them with the encouragement and support that they need to excel. We know the quality of our pastoral care has a positive effect and so we work tirelessly to ensure our students have access to a caring environment in which they can readily turn to us, and each other, for support.

Outstanding characteristics: The school was visited by both Ofsted and SIAMS in the 2021/2022 academic year and both of these inspections resulted in ‘Good’ gradings in the new challenging frameworks. The really positive reports were a testimony to the hard work of students and staff.
