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.

Any Questions? Tickets Available

Marden High School is proud to announce that Radio 4’s Any Questions? is being broadcast live from the main school hall on the evening of Friday 5 June 2015.

Established since 1948, and now hosted by Jonathan Dimbleby, Any Questions? is a high profile, topical debate programme in which guests from the worlds of politics, business, science, arts and the media are posed questions by the audience.

Tickets, which are free, are now available to the general public either by sending a stamped address envelope to “Any Questions? Marden High School, Hartington Road, North Shields NE30 3RZ” or by collection from the school reception.

Due to the anticipated high demand, tickets are limited to 2 per person.

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.
