OFSTED Inspection

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.

Year 10 Mock Interviews

On Tuesday the 4th of July we hosted a morning of mock interviews for the Year 10 cohort. Over the past few weeks in PSCHE Year 10 have been writing a letter of application for a job of their choice.

It is important to develop the pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the application and interview process. We welcomed local employers and parents to ask a range of general and job specific questions to the pupils whilst also providing them with feedback.

Well done Year 10!

Dear Parents/Carers

As some of you may be aware one of our students has been taken to hospital for tests for suspected Meningitis.  Whilst he is currently still quite poorly, I am pleased to say that he is showing positive signs of recovery.  I have spoken to Public Health England and they have assured me that there is no need for any action to be taken either by the school or by yourselves as parents.  I have sent out a letter with your child today from Public Health England which gives you further information and contact phone numbers should you wish to call them with any queries.
