Marling School, Gloucestershire is a high achieving 11-18 grammar school for boys with a specialism in Engineering. Students at Marling School are ambitious and thrive in a vibrant academic environment that provides pace, challenge and support. Marling School places great emphasis on the development of skills alongside knowledge so that students become active and independent learners prepared for both further education and for their place in an increasingly global society.

In March 2010, the Boeing Company and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) announced that Marling would be the second school to take part in the UK Schools Build a Plane project.

Marling School and their partner schools, Stroud High and Thomas Keble and St Rose’s, have made good progress on the build of their aircraft, which was unveiled at RIAT 2011 and has since visited the Farnborough Air Show 2012. Further educational developments are planned around the building activities projects with their GCSE English and Business Studies students to help promote the project locally and to learn from  marketing and selling the aircraft.

In 2014, G-SBAP flew at Farnborough Air show with its sister plane G-YTLY. The display was the first time a school built aircraft flew at the internationally renowned air show. You can see footage of this amazing event below:
