Local Community


In February a group of us raised money supported by the school to take part in the Congleton Rotary Swimathon.  We raised over £380 for local causes and half of this will go to the charity of our choice which is ‘Therapy Dogs UK’.  Congratulations to our team below.

We held our annual McMillian Coffee Morning 2019 and we managed to raise a staggering £550 in just under two hours.  Thanks go to all those, and you know who they are for the incredible donations, working hard on the day as this was the main reason we did so well.  At this event we also opened our new water feature which is dedicated to Mr Davenport.


The Community Education Awards help to recognise the valuable work that is undertaken in schools across the UK especially those that deal with a range of vitally important social issues. 
The awards are an annual celebration of schools efforts to help children and young people become positive community members. The awards are designed to highlight and reward the most effective projects being delivered in schools and within their local community. 
Marlfields Academy have been successful in winning a Community Education Award for their………..

For more information visit www.beartown.org where there is full details of Bearmania and its success.


For the London 2012 Olympics, Congleton wanted to create a logo for the town. A competition ran to design the logo and this was won by Marlfields. It is still used by the Town Council to promote community events.


We won the ‘School Bake Off’ competition held by Grain Chain and we met Paul Hollywood, who we baked with.
