Open Mornings

St Mark’s School Open Events 2014

This year sees the beginning of an exciting new chapter for St Mark’s Church of England School as it welcomes new Headteacher, Mr Barnaby Ash. Mr Ash joins St Mark’s School to lead it into the next phase of development, continuing to build upon the school’s most recent ‘Good’ OfSTED inspection and make it the school of choice for local families.

St Mark’s School was judged ‘Good’ by OfSTED in June 2013 and was recognised as an ‘Outstanding’ Church of England school in its most recent SIAS inspection.

The school promotes high levels of achievement within a culture of support and challenge so that every student can achieve excellence at a level that is appropriate to their skills and talents. St Mark’s places importance on the unique contribution that every student makes to their community and takes great pride in having a culture where all successes are recognised and celebrated, no matter how big, or how small, so that all children can flourish and excel.

Clearly, a broad and balanced curriculum and a positive set of public examination grades are of the utmost of importance for the future of each student at the school. However, St Mark’s School is fully committed to educating and developing young people in a holistic manner; spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, as well as academically.

St Mark’s School has a long tradition of excellent pastoral care based on Christian values and this now extends to its new, shared sixth form provision, The New Sixth, providing students with the opportunity to continue to develop their values, confidence, knowledge and skills and to grow into caring, well-rounded citizens, prepared to take their place in society.
