Marden Vale currently has 186 children on roll across 7 classes, 2 resource base rooms. We have fantastic resources that are used to make sure children achieve their full potential. These not only include our team of hardworking staff but also our pastoral team and fantastic outside facilities including forest school area and large outdoor stage.

In September 2015, to strengthen our drive for continued school improvement alongside our thirst for greater collaborative working, we joined the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust (DSAT). To find out more about DSAT please visit

Part of the reason for joining a Diocesan Trust was to respect and develop our church school status. We have good links with the clergy of St Mary’s Church. As well as clergy leading some worship within our school, we also hold services in church, support community events and use the church as a learning resource for our children.
