Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) is the admissions authority for the school. However, all prospective parents are welcome to contact the school and arrange a visit. Currently there are some spaces in Years 9 and 10. To proceed with an admission in Years 7 to 11, please contact:

Parents of Year 6 children on the roll of a catchment primary school automatically receive information about admissions from the Children Education & Families directorate early in the autumn term. Others need to contact the Department direct. The school organises an evening meeting for prospective parents in late September/early October followed by an open morning in the following week. Catchment parents receive the details via their local primary school; others need to contact The Marlborough School direct.

Home School Transport – Yarnton, Begbroke and Bletchingdon

Transport is available from Yarnton, Begbroke and Bletchingdon; this is currently organised by Oxfordshire County Council, however a concessionary charge applies.  Full details of this charge can be found at

The Governors at The Marlborough School have agreed to reimburse these charges until July 2018. This applies to students starting in year 7 in September 2015, 2016 and 2017.  The concessionary charge will be paid on your behalf on submission of the invoice from Oxfordshire County Council.
