Vision, Mission and Values



Our vision is to promote self-worth that inspires our students to live well, achieve their goals and be a force for good in their school and in the world.


St Mark’s School is a school based on the values of:

           Aspiration              Resilience             Community


Aspiration – encourages us all to search for what is possible in life; we help our students to identify the best of themselves and others, to nurture and achieve it.

At St Mark’s we:

Set ourselves high expectations


Encourage each other to achieve and celebrate


Try our very best in what we do



Resilience – enables us to persevere to overcome setbacks and challenges; it gives us the courage to embrace help and support for continuous improvement.
