Enrolment and booking
We have just launched our Facebook page. Like us at @CommEdMarlborough
When can I book?
A brochure with all courses for the academic year ahead is produced in the summer and distributed locally, and can be downloaded from this website. It is advisable to book or register your interest early to ensure the course runs, and also, of course, some courses fill up quickly. Sometimes course dates are delayed to try to get more enrolments, so please do not assume that you are too late to enrol. New bookings are taken for each term. Students can re-enrol and new students are always welcome.
There are no classes in the school holidays.
Updated flyers are produced through the year and similarly distributed locally, and available on this website.
How much are the courses?
The cost of courses varies and is stated under the course description. We endeavour to keep the cost as low as possible. Some courses may incur additional costs for materials and these are also stated with the course description. If you require assistance with the cost of a course, please contact Celia Clark for information on support which may be available.
We DO NOT offer refunds for cancellations with less than one week's notice or if the course has begun.
We may not be able to provide services when there are circumstances beyond our control, including very severe weather, failure of supply services (eg. power and water), changes in regulations or the law, industrial disputes, civil unrest or acts of God. We cannot be held responsible for failing to provide any services in such circumstances and will not offer refunds in these situations.
If we cancel a course, we will provide a full refund or return your payment.
All personal data is held on our secure database. This information is only shared with your tutor(s) and our office staff, we never give personal information to third parties or other students.
In case of snow
If the school is closed, then classes will not run. Saturday Workshops will not run should the school be closed on the preceding Friday. Please check the school website. School closures are also announced on local radio and are listed on the Oxfordshire County Council website. It will not be possible to contact students individually about school closures.
To book a course or Saturday workshop
Please complete an enrolment form and return with payment to:
Marlborough Community Education
The Marlborough C of E School
You may reserve a place by telephone or email. Contact us
Payment is required with your booking, however, cheques are not banked until immediately after the first session or workshop. Cheques should be made payable to
The Marlborough School.
When your enrolment is received, your booking will be confirmed and details of your course, including a map of where it is taking place are emailed to you (or sent by post if preferred, shortly before your course begins). Sometimes we do not run a course if there is not enough interest and we will inform you and return payment if this occurs. Refunds will not be given within 7 days of the course start date.
