Thank you for your interest in the current vacancies at St. Mark’s Catholic School. St. Mark’s is recognised as being one of the top non-selective secondary schools in the country and in our recent Ofsted Inspection (September 2022) we achieved ‘outstanding’ in every category. Inspectors witnessed the 'Everyday Excellence' at St. Mark's, and they were complimentary about all aspects of our provision. Inspectors noted that:
“Pupils thrive at this school. Leaders are ambitious for all pupils and they are determined that all pupils will be given the opportunities they need to succeed. Behaviour in lessons and around the school is exemplary, and pupils show high levels of respect to each other, to staff and to visitors. The work of the school is held in high regard by others, and leaders share their practice with other schools in the trust and in the diocese.” (Ofsted)
The Catholic ethos is at the heart of all that we do in St Mark’s, and we were also judged to be outstanding in every category in the most recent Diocesan Inspection (December 2018).
St. Mark’s enjoys an outstanding reputation for academic achievement based on a consistent record of excellent examination results. We are proud of the exceptional progress that our pupils make, and we are committed to the pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning throughout the curriculum. Our staff are central to the success of the school. They are experienced, highly skilled, and professional. St. Mark’s is a truly inclusive community, and we celebrate our pupils’ achievements, together with providing outstanding pastoral support. Our students have an excellent work ethic, are polite and respectful. We expect all pupils to work hard, to show respect and courtesy for others and to take pride in their appearance. The continuing success of St. Mark’s School is based on a positive partnership between parents, and they are overwhelming supportive of the school and appreciate the commitment of staff.
St. Mark’s Catholic School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to a satisfactory, enhanced DBS check. References will be requested prior to interview.
