In the interests of the wellbeing of our guests, staff and the local community, it is with a heavy heart that the decision has been taken not to proceed with this year's Marlborough College Summer School.
It is our intention to run an identical Summer School programme next year from 11 July to 7 August 2021 with the same courses, accommodation and entertainment. If you were due to join us in 2020, we do hope to welcome you back to Marlborough College, so have reserved your place for Summer School 2021 and carried your total booking over.
However, if you would prefer us to reimburse your 2020 booking instead, please email
While the office team are on hand to help from home, we do ask that you read the Frequently Asked Questions below before getting in touch. We will aim to respond to all enquiries as quickly as possible, but please do bear with us if it takes a little longer than usual.
Thank you for your continuing support and understanding. Take care and we all very much look forward to welcoming you to Marlborough College in 2021.
