The Latin motto of the Marden High School community is:

Carpe Diem!

Which means


“Rejoice…seize the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have.”

So we will:


  • Put the  learning and progress of students first

  • Inspire  them to be happy, confident, unique and tolerant individuals who flourish and achieve

  • Guide all of them  to fulfil their potential academically, socially and spiritually

  • Promote their responsibility and resilience, diligence and determination, independence and enterprise

  • Encourage their originality and creativity

  • Care for them in a safe and equal environment
