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 ½ 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.

Our pupils move onto senior schools at either 11 or 13 – there is a proud track record of success to Cranbrook at 11 as well as a range of independent senior schools at 13.

We know our staff are our greatest resource and we are committed to employing inspirational teachers who have passion, drive and vision with the overall aim of giving each child at Marlborough house confidence, determination and a willingness to try new things.

Our website www.marlboroughhouseschool.co.uk will give you a flavour of life at Marlborough House as well as some useful information.
