The years of a young person’s life from the ages of 13 to 17 are a time of great change and development. The SEC courses at Marlborough are committed to helping their students to navigate this exciting and sometimes challenging period of their lives in a way that is positive and enriching.
We offer a world class programme of education but recognise that a person’s education does not happen in isolation from the rest of their lives nor does their education take place only inside the classroom. Our courses aim to do more than just impart knowledge to our students. Instead we are passionate about developing the whole student both inside and outside the classroom, and about nurturing an enthusiasm and a love for learning in them. We also believe in developing their confidence and encouraging an excitement and a curiosity about the world around them.
In order to do this, it is important to create a safe, friendly and welcoming environment, where the student feels cared for, challenged and inspired in all aspects of their daily life. To make this possible it is imperative that we provide a staff team that is at all times professional, caring and equally excited and curious about the world around them as the students themselves. In this way the students and teachers can inspire each other to always be seeking to know ever more about this small but beautiful planet we call home.
