As the name implies Long Marton Community School plays a large part in the community life of Long Marton.
“This is a school that serves its community well. It is a school that many parents go out of their way to get their children into and many pupils come from homes much closer to other schools. It proudly wears the badge of ‘community school’ and it is just that”. Ofsted May 2014
The school buildings can be used by the local community for activities and the pupils from the school take part in community activities.
Here are some examples.
We work closely with Long Marton church, attending the annual Christingle and Harvest services. We also have local faith leaders to lead our assemblies e.g. Methodist church, Church in the Barn and the NISCU worker.
Boxes of Hope
Every year we collect shoe boxes for this charity that deliver gifts to countries in Eastern Europe.
Each Christmas we wear our Christmas jumpers and raise funds for Save the Children. (See below for other charities that we support).
Middle Eden Choir
This meets in the school hall every Wednesday evening and draws people from all over the Eden Valley.
