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.

Marden Raise Money for Tiny Lives

Marden High students recently raised more than £240 for the charity Tiny Lives.

Year 7 student Hannah Warne presented Miss Parker with the cheque on Ward 35 of the RVI in Newcastle, the Special Care Baby Unit where Miss Parker’s son, Riley, was born very early. Hannah’s mum is a nurse who works on the ward.

Well done to everyone for raising money for great cause, and one so special to the staff and students of Marden High!

The students went up on Sunday to help exhibit their ideas in front of vast numbers of the general public. Well done!

Headteacher News

I can now confirm that I am moving on to another headship at the end of the summer term.

With effect from September 1, 2015 I will take up the post of executive principal at Thorp Academy in Gateshead.

May I take this opportunity to thank everyone who is part of the Marden High School family for their support and encouragement over the past four years. With such brilliant staff, students and community support, as well as the imminent construction of a brand new school, I am certain that Marden will   thrive and will continue to  secure its place as one of the best schools in the north east.
