The Marling Media Group is a student group set up by Marling sixth formers and is brand new. Not just in the school, but also in the country. Nothing like this has ever been done before!
The Marling Media Group aims to create incredible content, from live events to short films, to inspire the next generation of filmmakers and producers.
The group offers live eSports broadcasts and short film workshops with younger Marling students.
The team is constantly growing, shooting short documentary pieces on Youth Climate Strikes, streaming live music events within the school, and pushing the boundaries of a student led organistation.
The Marling Media Group has its own live Podcast show, available on a variety of audible platforms. Follow a link below to hear the latest episodes and to hear members of the group talking about a variety of subjects including mental health, exam stress and more.
Our Sixth Form Open Evening will take place on Thursday 14th November 2019.
The evening will be a great opportunity to see 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.
Last year, we were very pleased to talk to so many of our current Y11 students and parents, as well as lots of students – girls and boys – from schools across the area.
We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming Sixth Form Open Evening.
If you have any questions please call 01453 762251 and ask for Suzannah Dougherty or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Marling Sixth Form Induction Days took place on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th July 2019.
It was great to see so many applicants attend the event and experience life as a Sixth Former at Marling School. The students took part in their chosen subjects, met fellow students, teachers and tutors and took part in activities designed to help them find their way around campus.
The Induction Days finished with a Parents Information Evening and it was lovely to see so many parents come along for a chat and to find out more about what Sixth Form is about.
We hope to see all students again in September and wish them luck for GCSE results day!
Discovery Day took place on Saturday 16th March.
We were delighted that so many students from schools across the area gave up their Saturday morning to come and try out A Level lessons and find out more about what we offer at Marling Sixth Form.
We look forward to seeing many of the students again in the summer.
As part of the Year 12 Enrichment Programmme in early July, the students took part in the 'Bear Grylls Aventure' at the NEC Arena in Birmingham.
The trip provided an opportunity for the students to be challenged beyond the curriculum and experience activities which push them to new heights (literally!).
The students took part in four activities inlcuding: archery, an assault course, a breakout room and a high ropes course.
The students had great fun being pushed out of their comfort zone and making new memories alongside their peers.
In March 2019 a group of Marling Sixth Formers took the amazing opportunity of speaking at the Change the World Model UN Conference in New York, said to be the most prestigious youth event in the world. As the only school from the UK, the Marling students were tasked with researching and representing the Cote d’Ivoire, debating critical topics including sustainable development in post conflict areas, terrorist threats to international peace, climate change and rights to education for refugees.
The lively debate involved students of diverse nationalities acting as ambassadors for the 193 member states they were representing in the awe-inspiring surroundings of the UN Headquarters. This year, the opening and closing ceremonies were attended by European leaders and politicians as well as UN Goodwill Ambassadors promoting the theme ‘No More Walls’ to mark the 30-year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Marc Boixader-Riera, who originally proposed the trip, said:
“It was a very formal and challenging setting so we gained experience of real-life debating at a global level. We had to forge alliances with other countries to get our resolutions passed, which was a great opportunity to develop our negotiating skills and also meant we made lots of new friends in other parts of the world.”
Emma Gray, Trip Leader said:
“The standard of debating was extremely high and it was amazing listening to these young people speak passionately about real world issues. It suddenly made me feel very positive for the future of our planet!”
The visit wasn’t all hard work. The students also visited Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, One World Observatory and the 9/11 Memorial as well as having the opportunity for shopping and enjoying American food. All students agreed that it had been a really worthwhile and inspirational trip and felt that their voices and ideas had been heard.
This trip will be taking place again in March 2020.
Every year students from Marling School and Stroud High school enjoy investigating their future at the schools’ annual Futures Day event.
