Golden Ticket Winners!

Golden Ticket

Last week our Golden Ticket reward scheme was a tremendous success. Teachers issued golden tickets to a student for each lesson they taught, if they had shown one of the 5 Rs: Resilience, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Reasoning or Reflectiveness.

At the end of the week one student from each year group was selected in a filmed prize draw to win a certificate and a £5 gift voucher. The winners were announced in form this week.

Well done to everyone who was issued with a ticket throughout the week for outstanding contributions to your lessons!

Non-Feeder Primary School Taster Day

Year 6s from a range of Primary Schools attended a full day of lessons at Marden today as they prepare to join us next year. They took part in a range of taster lessons including French, Science and Media Studies, as well as a special maths lesson taught by some of our Year 9 students. We look forward to welcoming them in September.



In the wake of the dreadful attack in Manchester last night, I am sure our thoughts are with the families who have been impacted upon. It is difficult to make sense of the loss we all feel when this sort of thing happens, but it is also affirming to see the acts of kindness and generosity of people who come to others aid. It reminds us of the strength and unity we can find in our communities. We have reflected with the children today on the importance of sometimes setting aside minor difficulties and disagreements, and on recognising the value of the time and experiences we have together in our own community. I am sure we will share the sentiment of the many messages of sympathy and solidarity we will see over the coming hours and days.
