Thanks to everyone who attended our Friday 13th Spooky Quiz night organised by the Parent-Teacher Association. It was a great success and there were some tremendous costumes on show too. Here’s some pictures from the event.
Members of our school cabinet yesterday took part in the prestigious Young Person’s Question Time, as part of Local Democracy Week 2017, and both Esme Arnold and Jack Newton had questions selected to put to the panel of councillors and local dignitaries.

Year 7 took part in the first Super Learning Day of the year, investigating what makes the coast special. The year group was split into three and enjoyed three different subjects; Science, Art and Media Studies.
The Science group visited the Blue Reef Aquarium in the morning and made sea creature Top Trumps in the afternoon. The art group made sand sculptures at Tynemouth Longsands, and the Media group created a marketing campaign for the North East coast.
Well done to everyone who took part for a great day.
Congratulations to all the students who’s work was selected for last week’s Work of the Week. There was a particularly high amount of Year 11 students chosen by the curriculum leaders, and students each week are now being issued with certificates for the excellent work they are producing.
The ‘Work of the Week’ is fast becoming an important part of our rewards culture here at Marden. This week’s submissions reflect more excellent work going on across all areas and all year groups.
Congratulations to Year 7 students Rebecca and Maddy; Year 8 students Daisy, Skye and Matthew; Year 9 students Michela, Riley, Will and Sophie; Year 10 students Imogen and Daisy; and Year 11 student Nieve.
