At Marden we put the learning and progress of students first. Our school motto is Carpe Diem – Seize The Day!

Take a look at this video to see our school in action.


It was a special Wednesday this week at Marden, with students and staff all wearing wigs to raise money for CLIC SARGENTa specialist charity supporting young people with cancer.

Wig Wed

As well as a non-uniform day, there was a lunchtime quiz, won by Miss Soulsby’s team! Well done to all staff and students for raising money for this brilliant cause.

Y11 VODA NCS Opportunity

VODA are currently recruiting for the last few places on their Summer NCS programme, which is an excellent opportunity for Y11 pupils to make extraordinary friendships, learn skills not taught in school and create unforgettable memories. It takes place outside of term time and last summer it allowed 152 young people to build their confidence and independence whilst spending two weeks away from home and delivering a project for their local community. The report on last summer’s activities is on the PDF below.
