We believe that all people matter

Welcome to St Mark's RC Early Years

Here you will find information regarding our Early Years unit.

"St Mark's Early Years staff are a fantastic group of teachers. I have and continue to be impressed with the level of care and commitment they show the children. Joseph loves coming to school, he comes home every day having learned something new and is happy to talk to me about his new learnings and experiences. As a parent you hope that all the love and effort you put into your child is matched and reinforced during their time at school and it is evident that this is of paramount importance to the staff, alongside educational needs.

Thank you!"
