A word of welcome from our Headteacher
Mr John Newport

Mr Newport, Headteacher of MBMS

Dear parent/carer,

At Marden Bridge, we pride ourselves on setting the highest academic standards for all of our students. We are an inclusive, caring, disciplined, and happy school that provides a safe, secure, and innovative learning environment for all who learn and work here. We are committed to developing the talents of each individual at Marden Bridge and this is reflected in the success and achievements that our students make.

Team spirit and support is the key to providing the best environment for the pupils to flourish. At MBMS, we ensure we give the pupils a wide range of opportunities, lots of which they will succeed in, but also, when mistakes are made, a chance to reflect and further their emotional/academic development as individuals.

This is an exciting time for Marden Bridge; we have a lot to offer our learners:

    Students enjoy specialised facilities across all subjects to help them learn, develop and achieve. We are part of the Schools Rebuilding Programme and will benefit from a state of the art new school within 5 years

    We believe all twelve subjects in each year group should be taken seriously so pupils can enjoy and flourish in a wide, engaging curriculum. These subjects compliment the needs of modern day society.

    The success enjoyed by our students is down to our staff and the high quality of teaching and learning that is continuously present in lessons.

    Our environment is safe and children feel supported to learn and achieve.

    We have an incredibly successful provision of OHSL clubs for both KS2 and KS3 students. The vast majority of our clubs are cost free and accessible to all.

    We are pleased to offer residential/visit opportunities to further enhance learning. These include local, national and international excursions.

    We have a strong pastoral system with committed Year Progress Leaders and excellent support from experienced and enthusiastic class teachers.

    Music and culture are part of the heartbeat of our school with regular performances.

    We have excellent partnerships with our First and High School colleagues and meet regularly as a collaborative, sharing ideas that will help seamless transition across the three tier system.

    Second to none sports facilities including a six badminton court, sports hall, dance studio and sand-filled hockey pitch built to national hockey league specifications.

    We have a newly refurbished library with many new books to stimulate and engage pupils.

    A rejuvenated school garden which has an ‘invention shed’; a fabulous, bespoke, outdoor classroom.

We aim for our pupils to make long lasting friendships at Marden Bridge and enjoy the very best quality of education. We want our pupils to leave school feeling confident and well prepared for the next stage of their lives.

Very best regards,

John Newport
