School tours/Applying for Reception 2019

Welcome and thank you for your interest in our school.


We are oversubscribed and have waiting lists for most year groups.


In September 2018 we will begin a series of tours of the school, for parents who may wish to consider applying for a place for the 2019/20 academic year Reception intake.

Please check back for dates and details.


In September 2017, some comments from parents were:

"My 4 children love St Mark's and we are proud of your lovely school. [...] We can only sing the school's praises and leadership, thank you for having us! Don't change the fab work u do each and every day!" Mr & Mrs S.


"My daughter has settled really well at St Mark's and has been very happy there for the last 3 years, and the school day sounds really fun the way she describes it. [...] I'm very happy for my son to be starting reception next week." Mrs H.


"We are extremely happy with the school. Thank you and all of the teachers for your hard work." Mrs W.

If you are ready to apply for a place, please see our Admissions page and link to the online Bournemouth application form. If you live in a different authority (e.g. Poole) you will need to apply through their process.
For tours relating to in-year transfers, please contact the school office and ask to speak to Mrs Arnold, the Admissions Officer.
