After School Academy

After School Academy

“Everyone thinks that because it’s a small school, we don’t do many sports and fun stuff, but actually we do lots more than my friends who are at other schools.”

Zac, Year 7

St Mark’s offer a wide range of lunch time and after school activities designed to promote student well-being and increase participation in the life of the community. At St Mark’s Church of England School, a rounded Student Life creates plentiful opportunities for all students to enrich their experience of school life and provide an outstanding education for young men and women in the widest sense.

We believe that students who take part in a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities develop excellent social skills, confidence and respect. It helps them to achieve a good study and work-life balance: vital tools when going on to further education or employment.
