Transition at Marden 2021/2022

Welcome to Marden High! The following welcome pack has been sent digitally to all parents/carers who have a child starting at Marden in September 2021.

We look forward to working with you and your child over the next few months in order to ensure a successful transition to our school in September 2021. Linked here is a Google Form survey and we would be grateful if you could complete this as soon as possible. We have also included some information about our uniform policy and PTA.

We would also like to highlight the transition section of our school website, which has lots of information for yourself and your child to look through, including welcome videos from students and some members of staff.

If you have any queries about any part of the transition process, please do not hesitate to contact our Head of Transition, Miss Laing, at Marden High School via email ([email protected]) or by telephone.

Year 11 Parents’ Evening

We have introduced a new and easy to use online Parents’ Evening booking system. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments. The new system also allows us to provide video appointments.

Year 11 Parents Evening will be held on Thursday 15 April from 4.00pm until 6.30pm. This event will be held remotely via our new remote Parents’ Evening system.

Within this system you can put in the times you are available and who you would like to see and the system will create the appointments for you. 

As much as possible, please adhere to the protocol below: 

  • Where possible, use a neutral background.
  • Where possible, only Parents/Carers and the child for which the Parents’ Evening is intended should be in view. 
  • Where possible, keep background noise to a minimum.
  • Book appointments between the opening of appointments of 12.00pm on Friday 26 March and close of appointments at midnight on Wednesday 14 April.

Please see below for a guide on how to login, book appointments and attend appointments over a video call.
