Information about the school

Set in beautiful extensive grounds in the village of Hawkhurst in Kent, Marlborough House is a country Prep School for 2 and a half to 13 year old boys and girls with a distinctly family feel; small enough for everyone to be known and cared for whilst still being bold and ambitious for the future. We believe strongly in allowing the children to develop values and character alongside an exciting Academic, Creative and Sporting Curriculum.
