Welcome to Marsden Community College

Marsden Heights Community College joined United Learning in November 2020. In 2023, following rapid improvements, Ofsted inspected the school and rated it Good in all areas.

At Marsden Heights we believe that children deserve the very best of all that has been “thought and said” in every subject area by the careful selection of our core knowledge. We desire to support our pupils to grow into confident, creative and resilient adults who have a lifelong love of learning. We seek to ensure that our pupils are effective communicators, active participants and independent learners who can take their next steps into an increasingly uncertain world with secure knowledge from the range of subjects we offer.

All pupils should be:
 ambitious– to achieve the best
 confident – to have the courage of their convictions and to take risks in the right cause
 creative – to imagine possibilities and make them real
 respectful –in all that they do
 enthusiastic – to seek opportunity, find what is good and pursue their talents and interests
 determined – to overcome obstacles and reach success

In order to support our pupils in their academic and personal development, we believe it is essential they experience a wide range of opportunities. Our commitment to ‘Education with character’ provides wider opportunities for our pupils to access a well-rounded curriculum that extends learning beyond the classroom.

The college’s focus on learning is the driving force behind everything that we do and students are offered a diverse and challenging curriculum both inside and outside the classroom. We have high expectations and we make no apologies for being very demanding of our students and our staff, as only the best will do for our children.

Honesty, respect and trust are important to us, as is being prepared to learn and take on new challenges. We know that no one is the ‘finished article’ and we strive to do our best for our students every day. We are a welcoming school and if you join us, you will experience our ‘no blame’ culture, where everyone works together for the good of the students. It is essential that you have a restless determination and belief that all students can and will perform to the highest level.

As a United Learning academy whose motto is ‘The Best in Everyone’ you will be someone who wants the very best for all young people, irrespective of their background. We are earnest in our commitment to safeguarding our young people.

I hope you find the information you need in the accompanying pack and am sure you will find other useful information from visiting our website. You are also warmly invited to contact us by phone or visit Marsden Heights Community College ‘in action’ and meet our fabulous pupils and staff. Please visit our website: www.marsdenheights.co.uk
