As we prepare to celebrate our 39th event and following the excitement of the London Olympics, the Summer School dates return to their slightly earlier and more familiar position for summer 2013. The Summer School team has once again been busy compiling another extensive and high quality combination of courses and entertainments available to residents and non-residents in the delightful setting of Marlborough College and its surrounding countryside.
With limited places available on many courses the quickest and safest way to claim your courses, accommodation and Gala concert tickets is to book online. Simply register (new online customers only) your name and the details of any others attending with you or login (existing online customers) before exploring the site and building your holiday.
The adult course programme has once again been carefully crafted with a balance of new titles for 2013 providing visitors with maximum choice across the three weeks.
Change to Children's Activities and Young Adventurers age bands.
This year we have adjusted the age bands for our Children's Activities (6-9yrs) and Young Adventurers (9-12yrs) groups. We are confident this new arrangement will provide a better balance for those individuals who are eager to move into the more specific course programme whilst retaining a carefully supervised multi-activity programme for the younger children.
Junior Troopers (3-6yrs) continues to flourish providing youngsters with an unforgettable experience of fun-packed days.
Teenagers (13-16yrs) are once again invited to explore our carefully designed programme of courses seeking to offer new experiences that make full use of the College's extensive facilities and the local area.
We are delighted to unveil our new residential boarding house ‘The Ivy House' situated in the High Street which will be available for summer 2013. This premium accommodation offers single and twin rooms all of which are en-suite. I should also take this opportunity to confirm that Millmead will not be available for 2013.
Don't miss your opportunity to reserve your tickets for our Gala concert series on Tuesday and Friday evenings of each week. Other entertainment includes our renowned programme of daily lectures, recitals, debates and much more. A detailed programme of these events will be published nearer the time.
On behalf of Marlborough College I am pleased to present our Summer School programme for 2013. I can promise you the warmest welcome and a holiday experience to cherish.
