Our Vision

Building upon the foundation of our school values; Aspiration, Resilience and Community, we aim to provide the students of St Mark’s with the knowledge and skills they will need to be future employees and potential employers in the context of business and enterprise.

In partnership with the Careers and Enterprise Company and via our PSHE programme we aim to manage and co-ordinate arrangements for effective careers education, information and guidance for all students.
