Yesterday, a carousel of careers activities were laid on for our Year 11s to try and give them an idea of post-16 choices available to them. Thanks to all our partners, businesses and colleges who came to speak to our students.
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.
Musician Rich Cottell today visited Marden as part of his epic school tour. He played some songs and talked to Year 9 and Year 10 about radicalisation.

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!
Marden High School have this week been hosting a ‘Prayer Space In Schools’ event.
All KS3 students have been given the opportunity to use the space to slow down, have time for reflection and be creative in thinking about themselves and some of the challenges they and others face.
They have been asking big questions and taking part in a number of individual and group activities in order to explore their spiritual side.
