About our school

Occupying a site of some 12 acres within safe walking distance of Harlow Town Centre, St Mark’s was established in 1965, opening one block initially and completing its second phase of building in 1974.


The school now comprises of four main blocks, around its central focus of the School Chapel, which offer specialist facilities in addition to traditional classroom space.


Within the last decade a new purpose-built Sixth Form Centre has been opened and most recently a new building providing additional teaching and ICT facilities for pupils in Key Stages 4 and 5, and a study and social area for the 6th Form.


There are three hard-core areas providing sport and play spaces, as well as a large sports field. Additionally, St Mark’s has attractive grounds planted with trees and flowering shrubs throughout, for the use of all pupils.
