About St Mark's School, Bath

St Mark’s School, Bath, seeks to provide excellence in education as a mixed comprehensive school.

Our vision is to inspire students for future success, by developing confidence, ambition and independence, whilst encouraging a strong sense of adventure.

We achieve this through our personalised, dynamic curriculum, our careers and aspirations programme and extensive enrichment opportunities, encouraging our young people to thrive as principled, well-rounded young men and women.

St Mark's School was inspected by ‘Ofsted’ in June 2015, and was judged to be a ‘Good’ school across all areas under a rigorous new framework. This inspection highlighted the quality education that St Mark’s provides for young people in Bath and the surrounding areas. Further to this, the school has also been recognised as a ‘Good’ Church of England school in its most recent SIAMS inspection. The pastoral and academic support, the school’s ethos and values as well as a commitment to academic development and well-being, were noted as particularly positive areas.

We enjoy strong partnerships with businesses and universities, providing students with academic tutoring, an experience of university life and activities to promote personal development.

We are committed to educating and developing young people spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, as well as academically. Everything we do is underpinned by our Christian ethos and core values of: wisdom, ambition and integrity.

Our desire to inspire all students is extended through our post-16 provision, The New Sixth, as a platform for future success in higher education and the workplace.

St Mark’s is located in one of the most beautiful corners of the World Heritage city of Bath, nestled between rolling hills on one side and the bustling and vibrant village of Larkhall on the other. It has the feel of a semi-rural village with the advantage of being a stone’s throw from the centre of Bath.

Our school sits at the heart of Larkhall, a vibrant, creative and thriving community, popular with families and with a wonderful array of shops, businesses, community centres and schools, all on the doorstep.
