About St Mark's Church of England Academy

Based in Mitcham, St Mark’s Church of England Academy is an all inclusive school for 11-18 year olds. Proud to be the only Church of England secondary school in the borough of Merton, we welcome those from all faiths, and those with none. We are a Values based Academy and our community is founded on the Values of Love, Hope and Trust.

Values and Vision
Our values underpin all that we do at St. Mark's. We were the first London school to be awarded the prestigious values quality mark and we are extremly proud of the Christian ethos that our values of love, hope and trust enable us to afford our community. Ofsted in 2017 told us that the welfare and safety of our students was outstanding. We also secured the best ever results last year, and our impressive progress score of 0.4 put us in the top 16% of the country, well above national average. 

Ofsted report
We celebrated a fantastic Ofsted report in November 2017 which graded us as being 'Good' in every category. As noted by the inspectors, the school has extremely high standards in every aspect of Academy life. Teaching an Learning is excellent and all students are able to flourish. Our Values appear regularly in the report as being a key strength; "Leaders and teachers strongly advocate the school's core Values of Love, Hope and Trust. These values permeate through the whole school." The safety of our students is paramount, and as a result the culture for safeguarding was graded as being outstanding. They also praised the inclusive nature of the school and how well prepared the students are for the next stage of their education. "Pupils value the education they receive. They are thoughtful, well prepared and ambitious for the futures. They value the diversity in the school and are proud to be part of the school.
