Welcome to Marden Primary Academy

Niall Dosad | Principal

Welcome to Marden Primary Academy, a thriving community based school which delivers an innovative and inclusive education. Marden Primary Academy joined the Leigh Academy Trust in 2020 but has always been the hub of this village community. At Marden, we pride ourselves on delivering a broad and balanced curriculum, enriched through our after school clubs and co-curricular activities made accessible to all. As an IB Candidate School, our curriculum provision is enhanced further through the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). It is an aspirational high quality inquiry-led learning framework that is delivered through in-context experiences and we are always proud to show visitors and guests around.

I believe that every child deserves the right to a nurturing and caring community, whose shared vision is ambitious and uncompromising. Collectively challenging ourselves and one another, showing both support and resilience to continuously improve and achieve, in learning and in life. Both children and staff convey this ethos at Marden Primary Academy.

We are beneficiaries of having such supportive and caring parents and carers, who share our vision of delivering ambitious, inclusive outcomes for our children and are undoubtedly our most important partners in ensuring we achieve such a high quality of education. Also integral to our successes, is the drive and support of Leigh Academies Trust. Belonging to a Trust means we are part of a hub of innovative educational providers with access to a wealth of information and practices rooted in current thinking and research.

It has been a very challenging time over the past couple of years due to the pandemic and the way that we have pulled together as a community of staff, families and children, demonstrates what a wonderful environment Marden is to be a part of.

Kind Regards,

Mr Dosad | Principal
