The Marmalade Bear is situated close to Bellevue Road and Wandsworth Common Station in St Magdalene Church Hall. The Head Teacher is Miss Suki Noble, who has been with the Marmalade Schools since 2008 and was a teacher at the Marmalade Caterpillar in Balham for many years prior to it becoming part of the Marmalade Schools. The School has 48 children at any one session and nine full time teachers, including 5 visiting teachers. The Marmalade Bear was inspected by Ofsted in June 2015 and is now Outstanding in all areas.
The Marmalade Bear staff are all well qualified, experienced and passionate practitioners led by the Head Suki Noble who has been teaching for 20 years. Suki and the team have developed creative learning strategies catering for different children’s learning styles and interests. During the day the children undertake purposeful activities to challenge and extend the children’s skills and abilities. This is all achieved in a warm and friendly environment where all children have a safe and stimulating place to learn. In addition playing and learning in mixed age ranges allows the children to support each other building empowering relationships.
Parents are involved with many of the activities and events held at the school to foster a close working relationship with our parents. We have a lot of activities for the parents to be involved with, like Grand Parents day, Parents Physical Day etc which all go to make the parents feel included and form good friendship with other parents. The Marmalade Bear children all have specialist teachers in a range of additional activities such as ballet, french and physical education.
