Our focus is very much on the individual child discovering the excitement of learning in a nurturing and stimulating environment, shaped by our commitment to Marlborough College’s ethos of ‘Conversation, Compassion and Companionship.’  Therefore, we also offer a full programme of creative, physical, cerebral and artistic activities as well as the mainstream team and individual sports.

Our passionate, professional teachers deliver an outstanding education, in a setting that offers the space and support for your child to explore the world around them and discover their own talents and interests. We ensure that our pupils are not just well-prepared for the next step in their journey, but are inquisitive, confident and happy.
