A big event happened this week.
We saw the first designs of our new school building.
In an exciting two hour meeting, the architects talked us through their initial ideas for a compact, state of the art, 21st century school for 900 pupils with suites of subjects strategically positioned around the campus. But the most important feature was that they had listened to our “design drivers”. We told them that we wanted a modern environment but that the essential components of the Marden DNA were not for sale: Carpe Diem, teaching and learning come first, everyone matters…you know the kind of thing. And it was thrilling to see that they were all there, but even better than they are now. So in September 2016 we will open the doors to brand new facilities, containing far superior opportunities for academic study and ( here’s the big point) fully integrated provision for technology, sport and the arts so that the extracurricular life of the school will flourish even more.
Year 11 Business students visited Greggs HQ yesterday to learn about their business model.
Marden students attended the Newcastle Eagles’ home game with Leicester Riders on Friday evening, and there was time for a photo opportunity after an epic match which the Eagles won 97-96 in overtime to go back to the top of the BBL table. Fabulous night had by all!
