At St. Mark’s C of E Academy, our Christian Vision of “Love and Respect: One and All” underpins and permeates through our daily life. This is supported by our Christian values of: 

  • Trust 
  • Compassion 
  • Forgiveness 
  • Friendship 
  • Perseverance 
  • Thankfulness 

St. Mark’s C of E Academy holds dear the Learning Academy Partnership’s and the Church of England’s vision of John 10:10, that every child will flourish, that they will achieve the very best they can fulfilling their dreams and ambitions. At St. Mark’s we believe that our Academy is a place where all are valued as individuals and as God’s children – and the whole child matters to God. We care for the whole child and nurture their intellectual development as well as their other gifts. 

We aim to serve our community by providing a first-class education within a Christian context. We believe the school should provide stepping-stones between church and the community it serves, enabling children to be familiar with the teachings and the environment of the Church of England and providing children with a secure understanding of the Christian faith. 

Our school provides the opportunity to experience what it is to live in a community that celebrates the Christian faith, offering a memorable experience of a lived relationship with God. It is a place where there is welcome, hospitality, encouragement, comfort, trust and understanding. We aim to develop spirituality and a sense of meaning and mystery in everyone. School life is distinctively Christian within a broader spirituality, which encompasses all faiths represented in our community.
