Located near to the town of Marlborough, Wiltshire, the school lies in extensive grounds by the river Kennet. A mixture of Victorian mansions and new architecture, with a Neolithic mound to boot, the eclectic mix of ancient and modern across the school estate embodies the breadth and quality of a Marlborough education

Marlborough has the usual offering of GCSE and a level, as well as the more challenging pre-u. Exam results are excellent with a mixture of sciences and humanities leading the way. Philosophy at Marlborough is a highlight described by pupils and parents as truly inspirational.
