Red Nose Day 2021

Over the years we have supported Comic Relief as a tremendously worthy charity, helping others that may be in crisis and giving them support in their lives.

This year’s Comic Relief will be held this Friday. Whilst fundraising activities such as quizzes, sports challenges and non uniform will return once possible, we are providing the school community the chance to make a voluntary contribution to Comic Relief via collection buckets available in school or via THIS ParentPay LINK.

The Tyne and the Tide

Last week, 28 Year 7 students from Marden High were invited to work with charity Hand Of and three brass musicians to explore the work and rich history of the Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade (TVLB) through Art, Music, and Drama, in a project called THE TYNE AND THE TIDE.

During the week, students visited North Nepia, a ship insurer, on Newcastle’s Quayside to learn about life at sea. With the support of the artists, students devised a multidisciplinary performance that was held on Friday 31 June, at the TVLB Museum. Family, friends, teachers, and some of the Coastal Rescue Team themselves, were delighted with the performance and congratulated students on their hard work throughout the week.
