Head High School Remarks

Marina is The Gambia's premier international school and has been in existence for more than fifty years. The Junior and High Schools share an attractive, spacious campus, occupy the same site but are physically separate within the site at Fajara, Bakau - New Town area of Greater Banjul, the country's capital. The school admits students from kindergarten through to Form 7 and there are currently more than 1000 pupils on roll. As a Cambridge International Examinations Centre, Marina follows the British National Curriculum and offers IGCSE, AS and A level. Marina International School is owned by the Parent Teacher Association which elects the Board that governs the school. Although the Junior and High Schools operate separately and have different head teachers, they cooperate extensively and most Junior School students apply to the High School at the end of Key Stage 2. The Junior School at Marina includes classes for Nursery, Reception and Years 1-6. Currently Marina International School is undergoing an exciting period of transition. Under the leadership of its Head, Mr. Musa Sanneh, the High School and Mrs. Fatou Jobe-Manneh of Junior School has embarked upon a process of change during which it will be transformed from a good school into one which is nothing short of excellent. To this end, the Senior Management Team has written an ambitious School Improvement Plan which will serve as a blueprint for the school's development over the next two years and beyond. Marina International School is committed to transparency in its dealings with students, parents, staff and the wider community of stakeholders. To this end, the website will be a vital portal as the school steers a course toward achieving its vision of behavioural and academic excellence. This site is aimed to give all parents useful information about the our School. For new parents, most of this will be new and hopefully will provide the information they require. For those who are already familiar with the school, this site should also prove useful in providing a clear reference source on different aspects of the school.
