A very warm welcome to Marlborough College’s Admissions Department.

Our role is to support you on your admissions journey and give you and your child a comprehensive insight into life at Marlborough.

Whether you would like to request a prospectus, arrange to visit, register your child, understand the process for assessment days, pre-testing and entrance examinations, or enquire about scholarships and bursaries, then the Admissions Department is your first port of call.

We want the admissions process to be an enjoyable and honest partnership, focused on achieving what is right for your child, and we work closely with current schools and prospective families to achieve this.

Useful Information

We have created a single comprehensive library of all the documents you might need to reference in making your application for either 13+ or 16+ entry, including information on bursaries and scholarships, and our current fees.


Marlborough College was founded to provide an exceptional education for young people from families of less fortunate means and today the College remains committed to providing financial aid, in the form of bursaries, to any child with potential.


Our scholarship programmes are intended to be an exciting and challenging journey of development and self-discovery for talented pupils. All scholars, whatever their discipline, are expected to play an active role in the life of the College and to inspire their peers.
