About Marden Vale CofE Academy

Marden Vale currently has 197 children on roll across 8 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, specialist reading recovery teacher and our fantastic outside facilities including a 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 www.dsat.org.uk

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.

Arranging a visit to Marden Vale CofE Academy

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed and positively encouraged normally, however in the present climate please call the office on 01249 813505 to discuss this further.
