So what's on at Marsden right now?

An evening with Barbara Arrowsmith-Young

We are delighted to be hosting Barbara Arrowsmith-Young, the founder of the Arrowsmith Programme, on Tuesday 25 February at 7.00pm. We invite you to come along to the school Auditorium and listen to Barbara's fascinating talk about her cognitive training programme. If you have a child who has a learning difference such as dyslexia, processing difficulties, dyscalculia or auditory processing difficulties, we strongly recommend you attend. Marsden has some places (part time or full time) in our Arrowsmith Programme for 2020. The programme, in 2020,will be in its 6th year at Marsden and has enjoyed huge success. More details will follow in the New Year. If you'd like to attend Barbara's presentation please RSVP using the button below:

We are pleased to offer an After School Care service for our Year 1- 8 students and their siblings. This programme will be available Monday to Friday from 3.15pm – 6.00pm and will be run out of the Primary School with the school grounds and the Upper School facilities also being available depending on the activity. The activity programme is designed by our Marsden staff and is overseen by the Director of the Primary School. A trained supervisor will manage the programme on a daily basis. The programme will have a variety of activities on offer, to suit the age group and energy levels of the students. There will be a designated homework session each day and opportunities to take part in art and craft sessions, as well as being physically active. Afternoon tea will be provided.


The service is currently only open to Marsden families. Siblings of current students and the children of Marsden staff are also welcome to enrol in the programme.
