We offer our students a strong academic foundation in literacy and numeracy, as well as many specialist subjects. Our aim is to build on the students’ natural curiosity for the world around them and provide a well-balanced curriculum that incorporates the most recent research on how children learn.
St Mark’s is an IB World School, and all students, from Preschool to Year 8, explore the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) . The PYP programme teaches our students to acquire knowledge through inquiry-based learning.
We believe in a broad, balanced, holistic and transformative approach to learning and teaching. Key elements are knowledge, conceptual understanding, skills, dispositions and action.
We want students from St Mark’s School to continue to learn throughout their lives. We also want them to have a strong sense of fairness towards all people. Our goal is that, as a result of their learning, the children will take socially responsible action. Action that has an impact on themselves, their friends, the school and the community in which they live.
