School Description

Marsden Heights Community College is an above-average-sized 11 to 16 school. Since the previous inspection, in April 2017, the school has been issued with a directive academy order by the Department for Education. It has been supported by the United Learning Academies Trust, the proposed sponsor. The date for transfer to academy status has constantly been deferred. The date for conversion at the time of the inspection is 1 April 2019. The school website is not compliant. A number of policies on the website are out of date and information about the school’s curriculum is inaccurate. The impact statement for Year 7 catch-up finding has not been published. A new website is currently under construction but is intended to be used when Marsden Heights becomes an academy. The proportion of pupils who are eligible to receive support from the pupil premium funding is well above the national average.

“Disappointed”

"> All three of my children went to this school. The oldest stayed their until he did his GCSEs and did pretty well, because he is disciplined and knows what he wants from his career. We took the other two out in their 1st and third years because we were not happy about a lot of things. My son who is now nearly eighteen still struggles with his writing and I blame the school. So glad we got the boys out.
