Welcome from the Head of School

Dear Parents,          

I am pleased to introduce St. Mark’s CE Primary School to you and welcome you on behalf of the pupils, staff and governors to our newly built school, serving the community of Herston and Swanage.  We want you and your children to feel that you belong to and are proud that this is your school.

Through this website we hope to give you a brief insight to our school, our aims and objectives for the education of your child. We can only hope to achieve these aims with full confidence and trust between parents, teacher and child.  The closer the partnership formed between home and school; the more we can further your child’s education.

We promote Christian values through all that we do. Working closely with the local church we welcome leaders of Christian churches from each church in the area to lead one of our daily acts of worship.

The progress, well-being and contentment of our children is paramount to us.  We aim for each child to reach his or her full potential and to leave St. Mark’s with a love of learning, eager to enjoy life, able to take responsibility for themselves and have confidence in all they do.

We aim to give you the information you need and provides an insight into the life of the school.

Please do not hesitate to call if you require further details.

You are more than welcome to visit the school to see us in action or keep visiting this website to see regular updates and photos.


Yours sincerely,

Sally Craig

Head of School
