Welcome to St Marks Catholic School; an outstanding, oversubscribed Catholic School in West London. Ofsted stated “The School has achieved a near perfect balance of ensuring that pupils make great progress and attain high standards but at the same time develop into well rounded, independent caring, courteous and upright citizens”.
This Summer's A Level results were outstanding with A*-A grades 41% and A*-B grades 75%, the best results in Hounslow Local Authority. Twenty two students achieved all A*/A grades including two students who gained three A* grades. Over 100 students are moving on to Universities including Oxford and Cambridge and studying competitive courses such as Medicine.
This Summer's GCSE results were also outstanding. 90% of students achieved standard passes and 66% strong passes in both English and Maths. 63% of students achieved a standard pass in the English Baccalaureate and 55% a strong pass. The Progress 8 score for all students was exceptional, 0.89. The score for Disadvantaged students was also outstanding, 0.81. 40% of grades were A*/A. 42 students achieved the equivalent of 8+ A*/A grades with three students gaining the equivalent of 10 A* grades.
The Sunday Times has listed St. Mark's as the 13th best Comprehensive School in the country based on GCSE and 'A' Level results in Summer 2017.
The Catholic ethos is at the heart of all that we do in St Mark’s and we were delighted to be judged outstanding in every category in the most recent Diocesan Inspection. Alongside outstanding academic achievement the school benefits from a new, state of the art theatre and high spec sports centre for students and staff. The school has created a sociable and friendly environment, noted by Ofsted as a “delightful atmosphere”.
