What is the difference between marcharse and irse? Do they both mean ' to go' ?
Yo me voy a la escuela.
Yo me marcho a la escuela.

In this context, I think both phrases means the same.
The assumption is that "marcharse" indicates to go from some place, and "irse" to go to some place.
Me voy (de aquí/ from here) a casa = Me marcho a casa
Me voy (from my confortable bed and home) al trabajo = Me marcho al trabajo
Ya te vas (de aquí?) = Ya te marchas?
