Thank you to everyone who took part in the PTA Summer Raffle and to everyone who supported the Marden High Parent-Teacher-Association and the school. Well done to our winners!
There is still time to get a raffle ticket for our PTA Summer Raffle draw on Monday 12th July. Here’s a look at some of the fantastic prizes on offer:
It’s been a long wait but a limited run of yearbooks for last year’s school leavers have been printed and are ready for collection.
Under current restrictions, we are unable to allow the class of 2020 into our building, but Mr Prytherch and Mr Ranson will be available between 2pm and 4pm on Thursday 8th July at the door to the auditorium next to our main entrance.
If anyone cannot make this time slot please email Mr Prytherch directly to arrange collection: [email protected]
Books are free of charge. We look forward to seeing you again!
A reminder that raffle tickets are still available to buy now for our Parent-Teacher Association Summer Raffle! They are £1 and available on ParentPay, or during first break (for both KS3 and KS4) in the LRC or the school office.
Our Year 10 House Captains (Warkworth, Alnwick, Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh) have been gathering prizes based related to four different categories: Connection, Environment, Wellbeing and the Local Area. The draw will be made on Monday 12th July. Good luck!
- Lateral Flow tests are for people who do not have symptoms of Coronavirus, anyone feeling unwell and displaying symptoms should arrange for a PCR test to be carried out and isolate while they await the result.
- The result from a lateral flow test must be read after 30 minutes and the device disposed of. Results read after that time would be void and should be reported as such.
Year 9 DC3 interim reports can now be found on the Parent Portal. Please email Ms Lively at [email protected] if you have difficulty logging in.
As Mr Snape mentioned in his newsletter (28.05.21) there will the opportunity for Year 10 pupils to sit exams in most of their subjects. In line with our Covid risk assessment these exams will take place in classrooms during usual lesson time.
This is always good practice for important assessment in year 11, and the next few weeks will be a good opportunity for the students to learn, develop and practice effective methods of revision, which their teachers will have shown them during lessons.
Currently, the message from the Department for Education is that GCSE exams next summer will be back to normal, so it is important that students get a feel for the GCSE exams and to become familiar with exam rubric and regulations. Once exams are completed by the end of June, students will receive valuable feedback on how they have performed, as well as information on further revision strategies for next year.
To help support pupils’ preparation please find below an exam timetable and a ‘How to revise…’ document for each subject.
