St Mark's is a Church of England secondary school located on the border of Larkhall and Fairfield Park in Bath, England.[2] It is a specialist Business and Enterprise College.[3] In September 2009, 282 pupils were enrolled at the school.[4] As of January 2012, this number had dropped to 240.[5]

In 2010, Bath and North East Somerset Council called a meeting to discuss the future of educational provision for the children of Larkhall and the school put forward alternative proposals to its closure.[6] In 2011 the school formed a soft federation with St Gregory's Catholic College in Odd Down, and an executive head teacher, Raymond Friel, was appointed to be in charge of both schools.[7][8] The federation has built a new joint sixth form, The New Sixth at the St Gregory's Catholic College site.[9][10]
