Why a Marsden School?

Come for a tour and learn how we prepare our students for their world, through Marsden’s future focused learning programmes and our Visible Wellbeing™ approach. Experience our warm and welcoming atmosphere; we strive to have new students feeling at home and part of the Marsden family from day one. 

Open Morning – Preschool to Year 13

Our first Open Morning for 2020 is on Wednesday 18 March, between 8.45am and 12pm. Principal Narelle Umbers will be speaking briefly at 9am. If you would like to hear her please arrive before 9am to sign in. Tours will commence from 9.15am.

The girls are keen to show you the school and we hope you will join us after your tour for some light refreshments, to meet staff and have your questions answered. 


We hold an open event every term. Upcoming events are also on Sunday 3 May, Friday 14 August or Friday 23 October. If these dates do not work for you please contact us for a personal tour.


We look forward to meeting you!
