About the Academy
St Mark's Church of England Academy offers a commitment to high achievement within a community of care underpinned by Christian values. The Academy encourages the development of the moral and spiritual well-being of students, alongside their academic success. The Academy works closely with, and is supported by, its sponsor, CfBT Education Trust and its key partner the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education.
Our vision at St Mark’s is to raise the achievement and life chances of our students and to serve our community by providing access to a range of activities, first class resources and opportunities. As a Church of England Academy, we encourage development of our students’ moral and spiritual well-being as much as their academic success.
We are inclusive of all faiths, as well as none, and support unity between different religions, cultures and beliefs. All our students are individuals and every student is valued for their uniqueness and the skills and aptitudes they bring to the Academy. A key strength of St Mark's is the very high quality relationships that exist between members of a highly diverse school community- the Academy has a strong set of values shared by all.
The Academy is situated in extensive grounds in a pleasant green field location with first class resources for success. Our specialisms in Science and Performing Arts support our students to develop confidence, understandig and skills in these areas and beyond into the broader curriculum.
