About St Mark's Church of England Academy

St Mark’s C of E Academy is a vibrant and diverse 11-18 academy situated in Mitcham in the London Borough of Merton. The school was inspected by Ofsted in February 2023 and remains consistently 'Good', with her majesty's inspectors determining that there is substantial evidence to demonstrate that the school could be re-graded to Outstanding, within the next 24 months.

The Academy really does have much to celebrate. We are the first secondary school in London to be awarded the prestigious International Values Quality Mark in recognition of the manner in which our values of love, hope and trust permeate all our work. ‘The school’s provision for the personal development and welfare of pupils is outstanding. It is highly enriching and supportive and focuses on ‘values in action’."Pupils are kept safe. They behave well, and attendance is high." (Ofsted 2023)

Our vision at St Mark’s is to raise the achievement and life chances of our students and to serve our community by providing access to a range of activities, first class resources and opportunities. As a Church of England Academy, we encourage development of our students’ moral and spiritual well-being as much as their academic success. We are inclusive of all faiths, as well as none, and support unity between different religions, cultures and beliefs.

All our students are individuals and every student is valued for their uniqueness and the skills and aptitudes they bring to the Academy. A key strength of St Mark's is the very aptitudes they bring to the Academy. A key strength of St Mark's is the very high quality relationships that exist between members of a highly diverse school community- the Academy has a strong set of values shared by all. The Academy is situated in extensive grounds in a pleasant green field location with first class resources for success. Our specialisms in Science and Performing Arts support our students to develop confidence, understanding and skills in these areas and beyond into the broader curriculum.
