Community Education

Community Education

We offer daytime, evening and weekend courses for adults and young people during school term time, whether you are interested in arts and crafts, exercise and wellbeing, languages, cookery or music.

We welcome over 500 students a year of all ages and backgrounds, from all over Oxfordshire and beyond. We look forward to welcoming you to our learning community too.

To get started, check what’s on weekdays and Saturdays, browse courses by subject, download our 2019/20 brochure, or use the search function at the top of the page.


Check latest availability on weekday courses and Saturday workshops.

Existing and new students can now book for next year’s courses and workshops by emailing us at stating the course title, start date and cost with your name, address and telephone number.

The school closes for summer holidays on 24th July. The last day we will be in the office for our normal hours of 10-2pm, Monday to Thursday, is Monday 22nd July. During the school holidays, it is best to contact us by email or post as we are in the office less often. We take bookings on a first-come first-served basis, so this will secure your booking and we will respond to you as soon as we are able to. We re-open for phone bookings after the summer holidays on Wednesday 4 September.

Small, friendly groups with expert tutors

Our tutors strive hard to create supportive, yet challenging, classes, and people usually say they are friendly and relaxed. If you have attended in the past, we hope you’ll agree with that and want to tell your friends and family about us, and Facebook like commed  to keep up-to-date with what’s going on.

If you think you could tutor a course that we don’t already offer, and you are passionate about your subject, with relevant teaching experience, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

The courses are organised and managed by Celia Clark and Cleo Gonzales-Redman within Marlborough School. Courses take place in the school.
