Marwood School 2019/2020

Everyone at school has made a great start to this school year.  Children have had visits out of school; including a great day learning about Stone Age people at Kents Cavern in Torquay; sporting teams have represented the school in football and running and the whole school enjoyed a space day with the Space Odyssey Dome up in the school hall. 

January 2020


The term has started well but has seen the end of an era at Marwood Primary School.  Mrs Maggie Kiff has retired after 32 years working as a Meal Time Supervisor.  She has given great service to generations of children at Marwood School making sure they have a fun and safe lunchtime.  Everyone at the school wishes Maggie and her husband a happy and healthy retirement.
