Faculty Leader: Mr J. Instone

Science & Technology


Welcome to the Faculty of Science & Technology

Given that our science and technology departments are housed within one Faculty at Marden Bridge, we are uniquely placed to make the most of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) opportunities.

Exploiting close links with the maths department we have used STEM projects across all four year groups to raise pupils’ aspirations and make them aware of the variety of jobs that can be achieved through studying these subjects.

ICE Bridge Construction

Working closely with Monkseaton Community High School, our year 6 pupils were given the opportunity to construct their very own 14 foot suspension bridge with helpers and real-life engineers from the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Pupils first put on their PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) before dividing into teams and building the bridge from either side, before finally joining in the middle and testing it for strength.


We’d like to thank the ICE and Mr Nicholson at Monkseaton Community High School for this fantastic opportunity.

IET Faraday Challenge Days  give students the opportunity to research, design and make prototype solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems. At each event teams compete to win a prize for themselves and a trophy for their school.
