Life at Marlborough
The Marlborough College campus is situated around an hour from London in the beautiful historic market town of Marlborough. The school is a short walk away from the town’s High Street where you will find all the amenities you might need, including clothes shops, cafés and supermarkets, in a safe and friendly setting.
The focal point of the school is ‘Court’, where you will find the Summer School office, dining hall, Chapel, some classrooms and several boarding houses set around an attractive lawn. The rest of the school is an extensive campus, with sports pitches, trout ponds, woodland, theatres and classrooms spreading out towards the beautiful Marlborough downs.
The boarding houses used by the School of English and Culture - Cotton and Littlefield - are set on a small hill overlooking the famous Marlborough White Horse and the Watermeadows, about five minutes’ walk from Court. It is a perfect location for the camp: it is surrounded by its own gardens, a small woodland, five-a-side football pitches and tennis courts, and so provides plenty in the way of outdoor entertainment whilst being far enough from the rest of the school to maintain a sense of community and privacy.
The location provides a fantastic opportunity for young people to develop their independence as the classrooms, the dining hall, the afternoon activities and the town are all within a short walk of the boarding houses, allowing the students to manage their lives safely and autonomously during their stay at Marlborough.
