Welcome to St Mark's

Our website aims to answer any questions that you may have about our school and give you a ‘feel’ for the life and work of our school community and for the caring and friendly atmosphere I know you will find here.

We recognise and value the unique contribution that every child and their family brings to our school community and we hope that you will encourage your child to contribute to the life of the school and to take part in, and enjoy, the many different opportunities that they will encounter during their time here.

At St Mark’s we believe that a education is most effective when the partnership between home and school is nurtured and valued and we strive to develop a strong partnership with parents. As a school, we look forward to sharing this period of your child’s life with you and hope that your association with the school is a long and happy one.

St. Mark's Catholic Primary School is part of the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust.  The Trust details can be found at the bottom of this page and you can contact them on  0191 8163700 or by email,
