following the publication of the latest Department for Education primary
school performance tables.
The figures for Year 6 pupils in 2014 show that 83 per cent of Marden pupils
reached level four in reading, writing and maths – nationally, that figure
is 79 per cent.
Based on that progress from the previous results, Marden has now risen into
the top 15 per cent in Surrey. As well as that, Marden is rated in the top
20 per cent of Surrey schools for the number of children achieving level
four B+ in all three categories.
“To know that we’re ahead of the field nationwide and doing so well on a

shows. Everyone associated with these results – pupils, parents and staff –
should be really proud of what we’ve achieved.

able to find out more at one of our regular parent information evenings this
