Clubs & Enrichment

Mission Statement

St Mark’s Academy is committed to creating a robust and transformative careers and enrichment offer. Our provision will allow students to develop expertise in existing passions and the opportunity to explore new skills and possibilities, gaining cultural capital and promoting character excellence, as we support and promote the school mission whereby every student is given the necessary tools to live life in all its fullness. (John 10:10)​

Our Vision

It is a statutory requirement for all schools to provide an inclusive and engaging enrichment offer for years 7-13. ​

At St Mark’s we aim to go the extra mile to ensure students are ready for the next phase of their lives and leave the Academy with the confidence and skills to pursue a path which will enable them to enter the world of work, follow their passions and become contributing members of society - whilst upholding our Christian values of Love, Hope and Trust.​

The new provision is linked with curriculum, providing experiential learning which goes beyond the classroom. ​

Enrichment and Careers provision has never been more important. In a post-pandemic world, students have missed myriad opportunities to discover and develop skills necessary to succeed after school.​

It is imperative that we bridge this gap and approach careers and enrichment with renewed vigour and purpose. ​
