On Friday 10 January 2014 the Rt Hon Michael Gove MP, Member of Parliament for Surrey Heath and Secretary of State for Education visited Marling School.

Mr Gove started his visit in the school library where he had a chance to see some memorabilia, discuss the history of Marling School and to meet with Head Boy Ben Stephens and Deputy Head Boy Freddy Williams. He talked to Ben and Freddy about their A level choices and how they had adapted to A level study. I then took Mr Gove on a tour of the School stopping initially at the site of the Long Corridor, where demolition had been completed that afternoon, and then on to the new science laboratories to show him the transformation made possible by long overdue capital funding. As we walked the site I had the rare opportunity to talk to Mr Gove about our Ofsted inspection and our journey to outstanding and about a number of educational issues such as GCSE and A level reform and school funding. The visit culminated in a media event held in one of our science laboratories where Mr Gove responded to questions from press and radio reporters. Amongst the responses to questions, Mr Gove said “what’s really impressed me about all the people associated with this school, is that they represent the very best in state education” and “I can understand why Ofsted said the school was outstanding because having had a chance to talk to some of the students here I know they are young men in whom the whole community can feel proud”
