Outdoor Activities

Outdoor pursuits have a strong tradition at Marlborough.  The Outdoor Activities (OA) Department has its own dedicated building; the Kempson Centre named after Mr G Kempson, a former school Master at the College and a member of two early expeditions to Mount Everest (1935 and 1936). 

Within the building we have our own newly refurbished indoor climbing wall.  A more recent pupil was the youngest British Male to climb the seven highest summits on each of the seven continents.

The department offers a broad range of activities.  These are designed to be fun, challenging, varied and adventurous but offering something for everyone.
