About the School
Marling School is ambitious for its students and ensure that they thrive in a vibrant academic environment that provides pace and challenge. Pupils feel safe and supported to engage with new ideas, to think deeply, to take risks and be aspirational. Marling School places an emphasis on the development of skills alongside knowledge so that students become active learners prepared for both further education and for their place in an increasingly global society.
The school motto is Abeunt Studia in Mores which translates to mean “Let us go forward through study to character”. Marling School's aim is to develop within all Marlingtonians character values including intellectual curiosity, resilience, respect and kindness. Marling students learn to be independent thinkers who take responsibility for their learning and their success, who believe in freedom and equality and who will join society as citizens of principle taking an interest in the world around them.
Marling School sets out to achieve this through their mission statement: RAISING ASPIRATIONS, INSPIRING EXCELLENCE, SUCCEEDING TOGETHER.
