Language Policy

Learners at St Marks Community School are taught in English, except for additional Language classes (Isixhosa and Afrikaans).  It is therefore a strong recommendation that learners wishing to enrol at the school are fluent in English.

School Hours

Grade R to 3: 07:50 - 12:30
Grade 4 to 7: 07:50 - 13:30/14:15
Grade 8 to 12: 07:50 - 14:15

School Reports and Examinations

Tests are set throughout the year with formal examinations being written only twice a year during the second and fourth terms.  The teachers will prepare reports at the end of each term.  No formal examinations are written by the Junior Primary learners (Grades R-3) as their work is evaluated daily.  Reports are issued at the end of each term.


We have a fully stocked tuckshop that sells sandwiches, pies, muffins, and much more.  The tuckshop opens at first and second break each school day. Tuck menu’s will be issued to learners on request.
