Sports

There is so much more to school sport than just the benefit of physical activity.  Sport builds character and self esteem in a child. It teaches patience and perseverance.  Sport inculcates discipline and teaches the value of winning and losing with dignity.  The awareness of others and learning to work in a team is a life skill that is invaluable.


At St Marks, these are the lessons we aim to instil whilst teaching our learners the benefits of a well rounded, healthy and balanced approach to life.

 

We have competitive team sports and are able to challenge other schools and hold our own.  We are always looking for opportunities to grow our sporting programme but have to take into account that a larger spectrum of choice will weaken our teams due to our smaller numbers. 

 

If your child excels at a certain sporting discipline, the school will fully support them in joining a team at club level.  Learners participating in outside sports are recognised within the school.  We however encourage learners to participate in our school teams with pride
