Information about the school

St Mark's CE Primary is a friendly and caring school set in large grounds on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells. This September we became 2 form entry throughout the school, following a school expansion programme that started 7 years ago. The increase in school size has transformed the school and given staff many opportunities for growth and development which we hope will continue for years to come.

In EYFS we run Forest Schools and following the promotion of our Forest school leader to a position at another school we are currently training a new teacher to take the lead. We have recently been awarded the ECO school Green Flag award, and sustainability is a key theme within the school with and active child led ECO club.

An extensive building an refurbishment programme was completed in July 2015, providing superb new facilities for the children. We also have an outside classroom, kindly funded by the PTA.

The Good Ofsted that we received in Feb 2017 highlighted the strength of the management team, governors and staff and the good behaviour and attitudes of the pupils towards their learning.

We have strong links with out local church and a strong Christian ethos. In December 2019 we had our SIAMS inspection and were judged as Good.
