St Mark’s Church of England Primary School is a small rural primary school with 85 children on roll. It was opened in 1849, shortly after St Mark’s Church was established nearby. It serves families from Staplefield, but also surrounding villages and towns.
This is a safe, happy and caring school. Each child is treated as an individual and we believe that education is very much a partnership between home and school.
Children coming into school bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding about the world around them. It is our aim to build on these skills and promote a willingness and enthusiasm to learn more!
We have strong links with our surrounding village schools through our local network (NEARS). Teachers work together on curriculum projects and children have access to interschool competitions, able pupil enrichment days, group science projects etc.
We are part of a Community Interest Company based in our locality along with 22 other schools.
We have developing links with a Church School In Kasese, Uganda and have been delighted to welcome staff from Kagando School to St Mark's.
We are a church school in the Diocese of Chichester and have links with other similar church schools both locally and across the Diocese.
