St Mark's is proud to be part of the Roedean Partnership of Schools. Roedean and St Mark’s Primary have joined in a soft federation, so that the two schools can work together, and both withdraw huge benefits from this partnership.
For many years, Roedean has worked with primary schools in the local community, but, rather than making a small difference to a number of schools, it was decided to focus efforts on one school in order to make a big impact.
In additional to the existing community volunteering projects, Roedean and St Mark’s will be working together on English, Maths, EAL, reading projects, music and drama. We have no doubt that this partnership will be hugely rewarding for all those involved in both schools.
