St Mark’s Church School provides students with a comprehensive range of sporting opportunities. We believe that participation in a range of sporting activities promotes a sense of resilience, self-belief, hard work, healthy competition and achievement that complements children’s successes in the classroom.
Our extensive Physical Education and Sports programme aims to develop childrens’ physical literacy by developing movement, communication and thinking skills. Physical Education lessons take place once a week for every class. In addition, the PE programme is complemented by our afternoon in-class sport programmes.
Outdoor education features prominently in our curriculum at St Mark’s Church School. Education outside the classroom (EOTC) is an opportunity for children to take measured risks, develop an open-mind and push themselves to try new things while extending their physical capabilities. School camps take place for students in Years 4 to 7 and remains the highlight of the year for many students. Activities include archery, bushcraft, tramping, mountain-biking, sailing, sea-kayaking and a range of other learning opportunities designed to complement the PYP Learner profile.
