Head of School's Welcome
As Head of Sark School, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to our website. Located in the car-free, idyllic isle of Sark, Channel Islands, we provide an all-round education for our island's children aged from 3 to 13 years old. We are undoubtedly a small school with big ambitions!
Sark School is a vibrant and exciting place to work and learn. Our policies and practices are informed by UK standards, which enables us to give our pupils the best possible start in life.
We endeavour to ensure that pupils are both engaged and challenged in their learning, using a wide variety of teaching strategies, skills and up-to-date learning resources. Thanks to our small size, we are able to provide an individualised and bespoke curriculum; always placing the child at the centre of every decision we make. Our pupils thoroughly enjoy their time at school and access an education that is both relevant and purposeful.
We are passionate in our belief that school should be about much more than just academic achievement. Thanks to our enrichment programme, our dedicated staff and a community of talented volunteers, our pupils have the opportunity to take part in daily activities as diverse as forest activities, archery, watercolour painting and equine care. We strive to offer children the chance to achieve in all areas and not simply those that can be measured by charts, graphs and tables.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact us with any queries you may have. Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you see you at our school soon!
