Welcome to St Mark's CofE School
I’m delighted to welcome you to St Mark’s Church of England School, a co-educational voluntary-aided comprehensive school for students aged 11-18 years in the Diocese of Bath and Wells. I hope the information that follows will help provide you with a flavour of our school.
St Mark’s School seeks to provide excellence in education as a mixed comprehensive school respecting the unique contribution that every individual can make to the community, and placing this within a framework that embraces the highest possible academic aspirations whilst accepting individual differences in ability, aptitude and level of skill.
St Mark’s School is founded on Christian values with a strong family and community ethos. The school values diversity and is sensitive to a range of traditions and cultures, represented in the community it serves.
The school is a well-ordered community providing a secure and structured environment for learning as well as excellent standards of behaviour. We offer a wide range of extra curricular and enrichment activities, and students are encouraged to remain on the school premises after the school day has ended in order to take advantage of these opportunities.
Our most recent OfSTED inspection categorised the school as a “Good” school and recognised the significant improvements in levels of attainment for the students and the very high percentage of good teaching. OfSTED inspectors commented that, “students are proud of their school and behaviour in and around the site are good, and that they feel safe in school, well cared for and part of the school family.” St Mark’s is categorised as an “Outstanding” Church of England School (Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools).
The size of our school is a great asset that we are proud to promote. We are a small school that allows young people to flourish and develop, in an environment that is caring and supportive. There is a warm and welcoming feel to St Mark’s which is an important part of its identity.
