A taste of sprot_edited.png

On the afternoon of June 17th, 'a taste of sport' was held - an event for the community and for St. Mark's school children to trial different sports.  Eight sports were on offer: Volleyball, Stoolball, Rugby, Cricket

Ultimate Frisbee, Climbing and Taekwon-do.

Just under 100 children took part and rotated through 6 of the 8 sports during the afternoon. After 3.00 pm parents and villagers were invited to come and watch the activities and the Friends of St Mark’s had iced lollies and a BBQ running. As can be seen from the photos – a good time was had by all!

Meet The Trustees

The charity trustees are made up of school parents, governors and members of the local area, so we can promise that the best interests of the community will always come first.

In these uncertain times, with school budgets being cut, we felt the time was right to set

up a charity that can apply for grants and funding to support the school's community.
