Marlborough Chalk​

This new project, spear-headed by the academic scholars, aims to capture and present some of the qualities of the College, its history and its area.

‘Marlborough Chalk’ refers both to the land below and around us – the wonderful chalk downland which has sustained such rich and varied civilisations for thousands of years – as well as the tradition of pedagogy represented by the College (‘chalk’ once being pretty common in classrooms!). The articles, written by pupils and members of Common Room, will be about anything and everything connected to these topics.

We will be launching articles in small batches on this page over the rest of the academic year. At the end of the project, a final Marlborough Chalk publication will be created to sit alongside our other pupil publications on the College website.

We very much hope that you will enjoy reading the articles as they build an eclectic picture of this amazing place.
