Children from years 5 and 6 visited the school and after a talk from the head teacher and some of the prefects, students were on hand to show families around the school.

Mrs Eyre, Churchill house leader in charge of student leadership, said: “I am extremely proud of our whole student body for the way they presented the school and represented themselves last night.

“Our students are what make Marshland High School so great. They are hardworking, committed and passionate.

“I was particularly impressed with the maturity and positivity with which the prefects and student tour guides conducted themselves. “Several visitors commended them to me and they are a credit to themselves and the school.”
