Wednesday 4 October 2017 17.30-19.30
Our Year 7 ‘Settling In’ evening is an opportunity to meet your child’s form tutor and discuss how they have started their time at Marden High School, both socially and academically. Other key members of staff will also be present for you to speak to, including Miss Laing (Year Coordinator), and members of our Senior Leadership team, including Mrs Reece, our SENDCO.
You will also be able to meet members of our Parent Teacher Association who will be serving refreshments.
Appointments will run from 17.30 – 19.30, and your child will be given a slip for you to indicate your preferred time slot before receiving an appointment from their form tutor. As meetings with form tutors will be brief (five minutes) we ask that you are punctual for your allocated slot.
Year 7 reports will sent home and available on Parent Portal before this date.
If you cannot make it on the evening, you can contact Miss Laing to arrange a phone call to discuss your child’s progress at another time.
We are looking forward to seeing you there.
The Parent-Teacher Association are organising a spooky themed Quiz Night on Friday 13 October. Buy tickets from reception! Details below.
On Tuesday 19th September we will be welcoming parents and carers of Year 11 to an Information Evening in the Auditorium. There will be a brief presentation from myself and the Head of Year, Mr Scott, followed by a series of three workshops on how best students can prepare for exams in this important year and how parents can best support them. This will be an important evening as we work closely together, school and home, to get the best for our children.
I hope to see you there.
Well done to the Class of 2017 for outstanding exam results this year. GCSE results at Marden continue to rise…

“There have been many happy faces in school this morning as our Class of 2017 have been in to collect their results. They have done very well and it is pleasing to see that outcomes for our students have continued to rise this year in spite of the standards bar being raised and GCSEs being designed to be more difficult.
These results are a great testament to the hard work and commitment of our wonderful students and staff. We are immensely proud of them all” – Mr M Snape, Headteacher
Well done Class of 2017!
As you are no doubt aware, on Wednesday 5th July, we were visited by OFSTED. They have now concluded their findings, and as you can see below, the report is very positive and recognises and celebrates the great things that go on at Marden High School.
Every day I see the wonderful endeavours and achievements of our students and staff, and to have public recognition of this from such a rigorous inspection process should give us all a sense of pride in the community that is Marden.
I hope you enjoy reading it and I wish you all a pleasant summer and look forward to seeing everybody in September.
