Marlborough College was founded in 1843 and is one of the country’s leading public schools. We have a wealth of architectural styles on campus ranging from 18th and 19th Century houses, an art deco listed building, 1960s dining hall and modern classroom blocks.
The facilities include; a 25 metre, 8 lane competition indoor swimming pool, Observatory, three theatres, two lakes, a beautifully restored Cricket Pavilion, astroturf pitches and international standard athletics track.
Two buildings deserve a special mention; the Memorial Hall and the Chapel. The Memorial Hall was opened in 1925 and is the principal memorial in the College to the 749 men who gave their lives in the First World War. Their names are inscribed on the wall around the inside of the back of the hall. The hall itself comprises a semi-circular auditorium of stepped seats with an ambulatory at the rear, with a stage that can be extended as required.
The current Chapel, St Michael and All Angels, was consecrated in 1886. There are three things of particular note; one is the window designed by Burne-Jones and made under the direction of Old Marlburian William Morris, another is Eric Gill’s sculpture of “The Virgin and Child” above the outside of the West Door and finally a series of 12 large murals by John Roddam Spencer Stanhope. These depict Biblical scenes involving angels, six on the north side from the Old Testament and a like number on the south from the New.
In all, Marlborough College offers some fantastic and unique locations for film and photography shoots. We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs which will give you some idea of what we can provide.
