Armed Forces visit Marden

IMG_2578

We had the first of a series of career presentations planned for this term aimed at giving our KS4 students a broad outline of possible career paths available to them after leaving Marden. The presentations will give a better understanding of potential work and progression routes in a range of diverse areas such as Software design, Engineering, Media, Sales, Transportation, Medicine, Travel industry etc.

The first presentation focused on the opportunities available in the Armed Forces.

See Mr Marshall for more details.

Feliz Navidad!

A group of Year 7 students have been taking part in a Spanish club every Wednesday lunchtime. On Wednesday 14th December they visited El Torero in Newcastle to sample some authentic Spanish tapas and put their language skills to the test. All students used the knowledge they have gained over the term, ordering and communicating in Spanish in what was a fantastic cultural opportunity for them all.

Making Winter Warmer

There has been a fantastic response to the Making Winter Warmer appeal by Marden students. Form classes have been collecting items to donate to the homeless charity based in Newcastle, and today some Year 9 students organised the packs ready to donate. Thank you to everyone who donated items.
