MHCC Mock Elections 2017

Our 2017 Mock Election was a real success, the turnout from students of year’s 7 -10 was 88.9% which was fantastic considering they had to vote in their own time at break and lunch.

A total number of 741 votes were cast, this also includes staff votes.

The results were as follows;

Lib Dem – 79 votes

Conservative – 90 votes

Labour – 530 votes

Spoiled – 42 votes

Thank you to all staff and students who took part!

Arrive on time!

As of Monday 5th June, Heads of Years will meet and greet our students as they arrive at college.  Any student that is late will receive an immediate detention.

Liberate Presentations

Friday 17th March Marsden Heights Year 9 students experienced an ‘Organised Crime’ presentation delivered by Andy Winters from Liberate. Liberate work in conjunction with the Home Office to encourage responsible decision-making in avoiding the dangers of becoming involved in organised crime.

Andy was an excellent presenter who really engaged the students, including some impressive magic tricks! Students took an active part in the presentations and learned a lot about how the effects of crime can cause a ripple effect which can impact family, friends and the local area.

We are looking forward to building more links with Liberate in the future.

On February 8th Nelson & Colne College invited all Year 9 students to a Careers Fayre. Marsden Heights took 180 students who met with various companies./industries ranging from the Police, Armed Services, engineering companies, manufacturers, Public Services and all points in between! Students were enthused and really ‘bought in ‘ to what the session was about. They were really interested in the many careers they could access and asked a range of questions of the companies on the day. Many students have reported that they now have a better idea of what careers are available to them in the future , and more importantly, the qualifications they need to enter the various career routes they should follow.



Al-Ikhhlaas Primary School Careers Fayre

For the first time Marsden Heights were invited to the inaugural Careers Fayre, hosted by the Al-Ikhlaas Primary School in Nelson. Many businesses were available for a small group of Marsden Heights students to speak to and discuss the range of career opportunities available to them in the future. Several students commented on how useful it was to know which qualifications they would need to enter the various career paths available to them in the future. We will be growing our links with Al-Ikhlaas Primary School in the near future.
