Our Vision

Marlburians are well-rounded individuals: academically ambitious, open-minded, adaptable and socially minded with a strong sense of perspective for their community and the wider world.

Our mission is to deliver the best independent, co-educational, full boarding education in the United Kingdom and to be recognised for this globally.

A Marlborough College education will equip young people to meet the challenges of a complex and evolving modern world. They will be intellectually agile innovators, harnessing the creative energy of diverse opinions and striving to make a real difference in society.

An Accessible and Inclusive Education

The external expectation of public schools has rightly increased. We embrace the necessity to make a Marlborough College education accessible to any talented child (whatever their background or financial circumstances), to engage more openly with our local communities and to be more conscious of our social, cultural and environmental impact.

The Marlborough we envisage will be a leading, outward-looking, diverse and inclusive school where children with potential are given the opportunity to make a difference. The diversity of a school community has a powerful impact on the values and attitudes of every member, not only by facilitating a greater awareness and acceptance of difference, but also by tackling the social issues surrounding inequality and by identifying ways to dismantle the barriers. It is important to us that our pupils and staff reflect the society of which we are part. Ultimately, we are proud to be judged by the contributions made by generations of Marlburians to the health of wider society throughout the course of their lives.

It is my privilege to lead Marlborough College, a school community with such opportunity to make a difference. As a full boarding school with exceptional people and facilities, we are uniquely well placed to create the right environment for young people to meet their potential, empowered and supported in their ambitions for their future and for that of the world around them. For me, increasing diversity at the College will be the catalyst to take us forward: not just greater diversity in the people who join our school community, but greater diversity in our partnerships, our curriculum and co-curriculum, our collaborations and outreach, and in the ways we teach, learn and engage.
