St Mark's CEP School
St. Marks CEP School is a friendly and caring school set in large grounds on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells. We are an expanding school, taking in an additional class each year until the school becomes two form entry throughout. We currently have two forms in EYFS, Years 1,2,3 and 4, from September 2018 Year 5 will become 2 form. The continued increase in numbers mean that there are lots of opportunities for staff cpd and new key stage, leadership and subject leader roles will become available in the future.
In EYFS we have a teacher trained in Forest School teaching and EYFS classes have sessions in the week. We have recently been awarded the ECO schools Green Flag award.
An extensive building and refurbishment programme was completed in July 2015, providing superb new facilities for the children. We have also just had an outdoor classroom built kindly funded by the PTA.
The Good Ofsted we received in February 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 our local church and a strong Christian ethos; we were judged to be outstanding in all areas, and over all in our SIAMS inspection (Oct 2014).
The school supports the childrens development outside the classroom by running a broad range of clubs and after school activities and competing in local sports events. We have a breakfast club in the morning and an arrangement with Play Place, Rusthall for after school care.
Our new headteacher, Simon Bird was appointed at the beginning of this year, 1st January 2018. We are extremely proud of our school and excited about it's continuing development.
