Tuesday 13 September marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roald Dahl, and here at Marden we are celebrating that with themed posters and activities round school, as well as having a dedicated English lesson to his work for all year groups.
Here, some of our teachers read passages from their favourite books:

It was a great night in the Main Hall and Marden are proud that our very own Year 10 student David Pike was chosen to ask a question during the debate. Skip to hear David’s question at 29:44.
We have met the deadline for this year’s School Report! Here are the finished reports from our Year 8 team.
For the ninth consecutive year, Marden High is taking part in the prestigious BBC News School Report project, with our intrepid Year 8 journalists.

Year 8 English Creative Writing Module
Year 8 English classes have been looking at the work of Arthur Conan Doyle, coming up with their own Sherlock Holmes-style crime stories. Following on from last year’s successful Who Bumped Off Brolly? mystery, they were inspired by the events of a staff-made video, Who Poisoned Perry?
…and after coming up with their own theories to produce a piece of creative writing, the mystery was eventually solved.
Maintaining our strong links with the BBC, Year 9 and 10 students have been working with BBC journalist Judith Burns on an article about the 1944 Education Act. Look out for the report, including video and audio footage, in the near future.
This time lapse shows off all the hard work by the Year 8s during Monday’s Super Learning Day, as three teams of Artists, Scientists and Media gurus created their own stained glass windows out of paper and lit up the East Wing of the school for Marden Lumiere 2013. It was a festive and fitting way to end this term; Merry Christmas to everyone from Marden High School!
