Inspired by some former pupils at our open day, pupils coming to Marden in September photographed lots of interesting details of our current school during a Transition lesson.
Each group had a specific area of the school to focus on and photographed: walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, fixtures and fittings.
They will follow it up in September with similar photographs of our new building, of which you can see a digital walk through here:

There was also an archery session on Thursday morning:
A select group of Year 7 and 8 students have been taking part in a Spanish language lunchtime club this term, and yesterday they visited El Torero in Newcastle to sample some authentic Spanish tapas!
Here are some photos from their trip!

On Tuesday the PE department took a group of students from years 7, 8 and 9 to Longsands beach where we competed in the North East Girls Beach Touch Rugby festival.
Marden had two teams entered into the U13 round and one U15 team. All girls thoroughly enjoyed the day. We had a range of wins, losses and draws! Looking forward to starting contact in September.
