Marlborough College

Marlborough College is the UK’s largest co-educational full boarding school and draws pupils between the ages of 13-18 from across the UK and the world. Our school community numbers over 1,000 boys and girls and this scale enables us to provide an outstanding range of activities and support for every pupil throughout the busy 7- day week.

Founded in 1843, the College is located in Wiltshire on the edge of a beautiful market town, within easy reach of Heathrow and an hour from London. The campus blends stunning architecture with inspirational facilities and is set in 286 acres of historic down land and centred around a 4000-year old Neolithic Mound, reputedly the burial place of Merlin.

The College is academically ambitious, offering a progressive, challenging and enriching education through the curriculum and beyond. Our pupils achieve top grades at GCSE and A level and 90% secure a place at their first choice of university including Oxbridge, Ivy League, Medical School and Russell Group.

Our co-curricular provision is second to none and all pupils become involved in a wide range of sporting and cultural activities. There is a vast array of concert and performance opportunities, three major school drama productions a year and we regularly field 50 sports teams each weekend. We value individual excellence and wide participation just as strongly.

The school is built on its values of ambition, community, initiative and service and these values are developed and recognised in all aspects of school life. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion means that whoever you are, you are welcome and valued here.

Pupil leadership is very important to us and pupils lead in pastoral matters as Wellbeing Ambassadors and as Prefects, lead academically in Societies, in Talks and by mentoring and participate in many charitable and outreach initiatives.
