On Thursday Year 7 took part in a Super Learning Day based on a theme of flight. They spent the morning studying adaptations of birds of prey courtesy of staff from the Kielder Birds of Prey Centre.
The afternoon was spent doing Science, Technology and Maths activities such as building and testing rockets, learning about bearings. Thanks to everyone who took part!
On Tuesday night we hosted our annual summer talent show Marden’s Got Talent! It was a great night with some tremendous talent on show.
Well done to everyone who took part!

Yesterday, eleven Year 9 students visited the Newcastle University Medical and Dentistry (M.A.D.) school to learn more about what it was like to study either medicine or dentistry at this university.
They experienced a variety of activities from lectures to practical sessions. They gave it their all with CPR, intubating Simon the SIMman, reassembling a pile of human bones and painting on specific facial muscles in the medical practicals.
They also looked at animal dentition, carving a replacement tooth and using disclosure tablets in dentistry. Well done to all students involved!
Here is a poster of what activities there are available to do at lunchtime in school. For more information please ask the teacher running the activity.
A group of Year 9 students have been working with Ms Griffiths on a “School of Sanctuary” project.
The group’s aims are to promote inclusivity, tolerance and acceptance within Marden High School and the wider community.
Last week they delivered assemblies to all year groups about racism and tolerance.
