At Marling School, we are ambitious for our students and they thrive in a vibrant academic environment that provides pace, challenge and support. We place an emphasis on the development of skills alongside knowledge so that our students become active learners prepared for both further education and for their place in an increasingly global society. Our younger students benefit enormously from time spent with our sixth form students helping them to develop their confidence and their skills.
Our school motto is Abeunt Studia in Mores which we translate to mean “Let us go forward through study to character” or more simply put “What you learn here will shape your actions in life”. Our aim is for Marling students to learn to be independent thinkers who take responsibility for their learning and their success, who believe in freedom and equality and who will join society as citizens of principle taking an interest in the world around them. We set out to achieve this through our mission statement: RAISING ASPIRATIONS, INSPIRING EXCELLENCE, SUCCEEDING TOGETHER
When you visit us, I am sure that you will be impressed by the courtesy and confidence of our students. We want them to enjoy school and I am confident that you will see how enthusiastic and engaged they are in their education and how proud they are of their school.

Marling School's Governing Body and the Headteacher share a common vision for the School, a challenging vision of raising aspirations and inspiring excellence to enable our students to succeed together. We want Marling School to be an exceptional place to learn and grow, and be the destination of choice for able students, regardless of background, in the local area and beyond.
We aim to provide unique opportunities for every student to excel and we encourage, challenge and support them to achieve their full academic potential and become lifelong independent learners. As citizens we wish to imbue the moral values, confidence and resilience needed to define and achieve their life aspirations through future employment and as members of the society in which they live.

The Marling Parent and Staff Association (Marling PSA) is a voluntary organisation entirely made up of parents of Marling School students and a number of very dedicated School staff.
We have the interests of our students at heart and take great pride in our School. A number of times a year we run activities that raise money to assist the School with the funding of educational items that fall outside normal funding mechanisms. Over the last year the PSA has spent over £10,000 on extra equipment such as new Library books, IT for the PE department, stage lighting for the School Hall, camera equipment for the Art department and Art display units. The PSA also pay for the School Minibus, a vital resource for the School.
Please join us to support the School as much as we can. To contact the PSA, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Easyfundraising The PSA are registered with easyfundraising. This means that if you buy items from websites such as Amazon, M&S and Tesco Direct through the easyfundraising website the PSA will automatically receive a charitable contribution. This works for personal purchases and can also be used to purchase items for your business or workplace. This is a very simple and easy way to raise money for the School so please make use of the easyfundraising link whenever you purchase online.
The Old Marlingtonians' Associaton (OMA) was formed in 1925 by the former Head of Marling School H.W. Carter (1919-1944) who was also the Association's President for its inaugural ten years.
