Success through learning

 A secondary academy which is part of the West Norfolk Academies Trust.

Marshland is justly proud of its reputation as a happy, caring and safe school. We understand that no student can work effectively if they feel frightened or unhappy, so we take a firm line in relation to discipline here and take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. Our House system and mixed-year group tutor groups creates a genuinely familial atmosphere and one in which students are supportive of each other.

Marshland is a truly comprehensive school and one that aims to provide an environment that encourages every student to become a rounded citizen of whom all of society can be proud. It offers many varied opportunities for personal growth as well as an appropriate curriculum for each student. All students are made aware of their potential as individuals, and parents / carers and students are kept regularly informed about their progress against these targets.

We endeavour to instil a love of learning and a respect for education as we believe that education is life-changing and that learning should continue throughout life. We strive to ensure each and every student is the best they can be at whatever they do. We promote high aspirations for every student, encourage excellence in every area and celebrate individual achievement.
