Founded in 1843, and situated in one of the most attractive market towns in the country, Marlborough College is a flourishing and fully coeducational, independent boarding school for pupils aged between thirteen and eighteen. It is a remarkable place in an evocative and unique setting, and it enjoys the advantages of being within easy reach of London and indeed many other parts of the country.     

It is the largest full boarding co-educational boarding school in the country and its scale enables it to provide a great range of activities throughout the week. The co-curricular provision is outstanding and all pupils become involved in a wide range of sporting and cultural activities. Its fifteen boarding houses provide anchorages for the life of each pupil, and the quality of the education received outside the classroom is matched by the pastoral care given by this house system, which emphasizes the importance of rigor, respect and responsibility.  Although the school is large it can meet together in its splendid buildings, which are arranged around a four thousand year old Neolithic mound, reputedly the burial place of Merlin.      

The school promotes great breadth in learning and the small size of the classes ensures that each child is well cared for. The house and tutor systems and the great range of learned societies in the school make sure that the intellectual development of each child is nurtured, and the Guidance Centre ensures that careers after school are planned carefully.Registrations can be taken four years before entry and applicants are invited to visit on several occasions before enrolling for Assessment. The deadline for this is the 5th of November of Year 7, although after this date some place may be available through the Master’s List.    Marlborough is a traditional boarding school which places great emphasis on the importance service and generosity of spirit.  

It encourages the young to see the world through the eyes of others and it is keen to teach young people about the international world.  It is has strong relationships with schools around the globe, particularly with Marlborough Malaysia, which is unique in that it is not a franchise but a genuine extension of Marlborough in Wiltshire.
