The Marling School Target Fund is aiming to raise £5,000 to purchase a Key Stage 3 laser cutter. Mr Berry, Head of Design Technology, said: “We strongly believe that all students of Marling School should have access to the latest computer-aided manufacturing techniques. Our existing laser cutter is now in its eleventh year of operation and student demand on this specialised equipment has never been higher. The purchase of a new laser cutter would ensure all students can access this technology as part of their curriculum and have a greater frequency of use in their project work, enabling deeper learning and faster progression for all.” If you would like to make a voluntary contribution towards this fund, please send a cheque made payable to Cotswold Beacon Academy Trust or visit your ParentPay account. With many thanks in advance for your support.
