As we prepare to celebrate our 40th event, 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.

Brochure 2014

On behalf of Marlborough College I am delighted to present our milestone brochure for summer 2014 as we proudly celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Summer School. This special event has continued to grow in popularity over four decades attracting visitors from across the UK and from all corners of the world with many returning year on year to renew friendships and enjoy a relaxing holiday in the tranquil setting of the College and its surrounding countryside.

Adult courses

The Summer School team has once again been busy producing another high quality combination of courses and entertainment available to residents and non-residents alike, with a careful balance of new titles for summer 2014 providing maximum choice across the three weeks. In particular I would like to draw your attention to a special section of courses that has been compiled to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of hostilities at the beginning of the Great War.

Children's courses

Building on last year's popular adjustment to the children's age bands, our younger visitors are once again invited to explore a programme that is bursting with courses and activities for all ages and interests, making full use of the fabulous facilities on campus and in the local area.


The extensive refurbishment programme of the boarding houses continues to unfold and we are delighted to reintroduce a stylish and refreshed Millmead for summer 2014. As anticipated the Ivy House proved extremely popular last year and early booking is advised to avoid disappointment. In the reverse of last summer I can confirm that C3 House (adjacent to Millmead) will begin its refurbishment during the summer and consequently will not be available for Summer School 2014.


This summer we have taken the decision to adjust the Gala Concert series by incorporating the Tuesday events in the wider entertainment programme. These evening events will no longer require tickets but will remain complimentary to Summer School customers in the week they are attending and the general public will be welcome to attend for a small charge on the door. The Friday Gala Concerts will continue as before so don't miss your opportunity to reserve or purchase your tickets in good time.

We hope you enjoy perusing the 2014 brochure and can find the right course for you. We look forward to receiving your booking and can promise the warmest welcome and a holiday experience to remember.
