Mrs Noble was really impressed with her Year 8s yesterday as they served up a printmaking masterclass in Fine Art. The Art rooms were a hive of activity, with printmaking and sketchbook work in full swing! Well done Year 8 for a superb approach to your studies!

“I recently asked all Curriculum Leaders to send me a piece of work from their subject area which reflected the high standard of work that Marden High students achieve.
There was a great response from staff eager to show off the fantastic work that goes on in their classrooms, and that work is now displayed in the corridor outside my office for all to see.
What has also been most impressive is the students’ ability to explain to me what they have been learning, and the thinking strategies they have used to produce their work.
Some excellent resourcefulness, resilience and reasoning used here. Congratulations to all!”
– Mr M Snape, Headteacher

We have more success to celebrate at Marden, as Year 8 student and Creative Writing Club regular Jenny Hurnell entered the Sunderland Literature & Creative Writing Festival and came 2nd in the Short Story Award in the Under 17s category.
“I went to the awards ceremony…and was amazed that I came 2nd. There were 170 people that entered in the under category!” said Jenny.
A remarkable achievement. Well done Jenny!
