School Description

St Mark’s Church of England School is very small compared to other secondary schools. The majority of students are of White British heritage. The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for looked after children, students known to be eligible for free school meals and those with a parent or carer in the armed services) is above average. The proportion of students who have special educational needs supported through school action is just above average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs is above average. A very small number of students attend an off-site provision called The Link. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. The school is part of a collaborative federation with St Gregory’s Catholic College and there is an executive headteacher who oversees both schools. A small number of students attend courses part time at St Gregory’s Catholic College. The school has been entering students in examinations for half their GCSE options at the end of Year 10 and the other half at the end of Year 11. There has also been an opportunity for different groups of Key Stage 4 students to take GCSE examinations in mathematics and English at different points during the course. Students embarking on GCSE courses from September 2013 will do a two year linear course in all of their subjects.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

AUTHOR:
"> My son goes to St Mark's and we are both happy with what the school offers. Unfortunately the headline figures on this site do not give the full picture. It is a very friendly small school where the children feel secure and comfortable and where great progress is being made in the quality of educational provision. Visit the school and you will see for yourself.
