The St Mark's School community is founded on the Christian values of love, justice and peace expressed in the gospels. These values underpin everything that we do within the School.
We view each person as special and unique. We recognise and respond to their gifts, their needs and their aspirations. We seek to show love and care for all individuals, celebrating achievement and providing support when difficulties are experienced.
We recognise the crucial role which parents have to play in the education of their children. The continuing success of St Mark's School is based on this positive partnership between parents and School. The active involvement of parents in the life of the School brings a unique warmth and vitality to St Mark's.

Pupils require an orderly environment to focus on their studies effectively. We insist on the highest standards of behaviour and self-discipline. We expect all pupils to work hard, to show respect and courtesy for others and to take a pride in their appearance.
The School continues to offer a broad and balanced curriculum designed to meet the opportunities and challenges of adult life in the 21st century.
