We offer both Open Days and House Visit Days as a good way to get a sense of the community and culture that Marlborough College offers.

Open Days

Our larger Open Day events take place during the Summer Term for prospective pupils in Year 4 and 5, and in the Michaelmas Term for those closer to the application deadlines who are in Year 6 and 7.

The Open Day includes a welcome and introduction by the Master and Director of Admissions, followed by a pupil-led campus tour, a boarding house visit, and the opportunity to meet the Master, Director of Admissions, the senior management team and Heads of Department during a buffet lunch.
