Open Evening - 14 November

On Thursday 14th November we will be holding our Sixth Form Open Evening from 5pm - 8pm.

The evening is an opportunity to see some of our facilities, learn about how we work and what we can offer, meet students, find out about A Level choices and talk to specialist subject teachers.

There will be two presentations during the course of the evening:

Keynote Speech in the Lecture Theatre at 5:15pm, 6:15pm and 7.15pm

How to Choose Your A Levels in the Music Hall at 5:30pm, 6:30pm and 7:30pm

Please begin your visit by signing in and collecting a prospectus from our Welcome desk in Marling Dining Hall, where there will be refreshments available; have a look at our classrooms, study facilities and library in the West Block and then making your way to the Sixth Form, Music Hall and Science buildings to attend talks and visit subject stands. We will also be showcasing our Duke of Edinburgh programme outside the Sixth Form building. 

Please see the map below showing the event activity locations and parking.

Please note - there is limited parking on the school site.  Please do not park on the road on Downfield Road or Beards Lane - the roads are narrow and it causes severe congestion. 

Please make use of parking in front of Marling school house (if the weather is dry), the Marling Sports Hall car park, East Campus yard rather than the car park off Downfield Road - there is also good parking at Howdens on Chestnut Lane and Homebase just a bit further along Cainscross Road towards Stroud, both of which are within easy walking distance of Marling School. In the opposite direction there is also parking behind the Fortune Takeaway off Westward Road and at the Co-op on Cashes Green Road.

(The Five Valleys Fireworks website also illustrates other parking options in Stroud which are within walking distance of the 6th Form )

We very much look forward to seeing you next Thursday.
