Marsden Heights Community College is a mixed 11-16 comprehensive school in Brierfield, Lancashire, England.


The school opened in September 2006 as part of the first wave of a nationwide 10-15 year programme of capital investment funded by the Department for Education and Skills called Building Schools for the Future. It currently occupies the sites of the former Edge End High School and Mansfield High School; its new buildings, completed in 2010, are on a single site at the Bent Head playing fields nearby, situated in Brierfield.


In 2011, 45% of Year 11 students achieved 5 A*-C GCSE passes (or equivalent) including English Language and Mathematics. The school's value-added measure was 1018.2 (national average 1000), for adding value between the end of Key Stage 2 and the end of Key Stage 4.[1]
