Welcome letter from Ms Thomson Headteacher

Dear Students and Parents/Carers

Welcome to Marlborough!  I hope like me you are excited about starting your new school and filled with hope and optimism about what a new school can offer.

Marlborough is very dear to my heart.  Our values drive everything that we do, in particular kindness!  If we all work together as a kind, respectful and dignified way, the learning journey cannot possibly go wrong.

We are very excited that you will be joining us when our new English block, Seacole, will be in place and our Pastoral hub (still to be named).  With an eye on the horizon and ever-changing landscape, teachers are working exceptionally hard to see how we can utilise ever advancing technologies in to their classrooms to open up the world in a way that I can only describe as extraordinary.

I expect full school uniform, 100% sign up to our Code of conduct and Home School partnership; all of this, I promise you allows teachers to teach and school life to be the calm, motivational place of learning that launches well-rounded, well qualified and value driven young people into society.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you all.

Ms A Thomson Headteacher


Welcome Letter from Ms Pounnas Assistant Head Teacher

Dear Year 6 Student,

We are delighted that you have chosen The Marlborough Science Academy as your Secondary School. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our school and helping you reach your full potential.

We understand that starting secondary school can be a very exciting yet also a daunting experience for many students.  Our staff understand this and will work closely with your primary schools over the next few months to make your transition into our school as easy as possible.

Please take the time to look at our website and talk to current students, so you can begin to get a sense of your new school and what it will be like when you start with us in September. We will update our website regularly with new information and email your parents/carers every time this happens.

We will soon be in discussions with your Primary schools to find out more about you and what we can do to support you through your Transition to Secondary School. Here at The Marlborough Science Academy, we will do everything we can to ensure that your move to secondary school is a positive and enjoyable experience.

You can also prepare yourself for transition by taking a look at BBC Bitesize who have put together lots of information and videos about starting Secondary School. The series offers practical advice and emotional support for students and parents/carers to help take the stress out of taking the next big step.

Kind Regards,

Ms Pounnas Assistant Headteacher Transition and KS3
