The Marsden Foundation is committed to the long term prosperity of Marsden and plays an important role in providing access to a high quality Marsden education for current and future students.

Marsden Foundation – Towards 150

As a not-for-profit charitable trust, Marsden plays an important role in fostering a range of opportunities that enable students from all walks of life to experience a Marsden education. This is underpinned by our commitment to invest in the ongoing development, innovation and quality of all parts of school life – including the campus, quality teachers, innovative curriculum and engagement with the wider community.

The establishment of the Marsden Foundation in 2021 is the first step on an exciting journey towards our 150th anniversary. The Foundation will provide opportunities for supporters of Marsden to invest in the future of our students and our programmes - academic, cultural, sports, leadership and service… all of the things that combine to form a Marsden learning journey that inspires life in all its fullness.

Marsden Foundation Scholarships

We invite you invest in the future through your gift of a Marsden Foundation Scholarship.

Helping a student achieve their dreams is one of the best gifts you can give. Marsden Foundation Scholarships have the capacity to enhance students' lives, to foster excellence and, ultimately, to benefit society. Many Marsden scholarship recipients have gone on to make meaningful contributions to the community, both locally and internationally. The Marsden Foundation supports a range of scholarships that attract motivated and talented students to Marsden. With your help we can continue to offer these vital scholarships, and increase funds so that more students can experience the range of educational and co-curricular opportunities central to Marsden experience.

    Every girl deserves the opportunity to realise her full potential and live a life of meaning, accomplishment and genuine happiness. Marsden scholarships encourage both diversity and excellence within our community.
