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. This September we became 2 form entry throughout the school, following a school expansion programme which 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 in the 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 schools Green Flag award, and sustainability is a key theme within the school with an active child led ECO Club.
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 SIAS 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 run by the school in the morning and an on site After School Club run by Play Place.
Our headteacher, Simon Bird was appointed at the beginning of last year, 1st January 2018. We are extremely proud of our school and excited about its continuing development.
