Marlborough House School


There is no better way to find out more than to come and see for yourself.

The first step for most parents is a visit to the school. We would like to encourage you to visit Marlborough House in order to see the school in action, and to meet our pupils and teachers. Visits may be made during our Open Mornings or by individual appointment. We hold three Open Mornings each year, one in October, one in March and one in May. In all cases, the visit will include a tour of the school and the opportunity to observe lessons. Individual appointments will include an informal meeting with the Headmaster. We recommend an Open Morning visit as an initial step if you are looking for a few years in the future, but an individual appointment if you are considering your child starting at the school in the next couple of years. 

We were hugely impressed by the people we met, their love of what they do, and their unwavering focus on the needs of the children.  In addition the wonderful facilities and the beautiful location of the school have left us both with the very strong impression that our sons would flourish as pupils of Marlborough House
