Marlfields is a very special school. It is small enough to allow all staff to know all the pupils, whether they teach them or not. The staff are highly committed to the aims and ethos of the School, dedicated to developing the full potential of all. We are committed to focusing on the individual and allowing pupils to grow in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere.
The School has a non-selective entry but achieves a great deal. HMI inspector for Ofsted report was very favourable and commented most positively on not only the academic achievements, but also the demeanour and positive attitude of the pupils. The pupils at Marlfields flourish in an environment that respects them as individuals and endeavours to develop all aspects of each one.
In these days of League Tables it is tempting to focus on academic life at the expense of other important aspects. At Marlfields we shall always be committed to education in the widest sense and develop the whole child.
We welcome you to visit us to see for yourself our vibrant learning community.
