About Marling School

This is a smaller than average-sized selective secondary school. The proportion of students eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for looked-after children, students known to be eligible for free school meals and those from service families) is well below the national average. The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is well below average. Almost all students speak English as their first language. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is well below average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also well below average. The school became a stand-alone academy in August 2011. The sixth form is run in partnership with the adjacent girls’ grammar school.
