Community Education

We offer daytime, evening and Saturday 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. Details of the 2019/20 programme will be announced in July – please check back then, or contact us with your details to receive information when available.

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 2018/19 brochure, or use the search function at the top of the page.


New Course - Street Photography

We are introducing a new one-day workshop on Saturday 18th May to help you learn to capture the places and people around you. Street Photography is run by Graham Wilson, photography tutor and organiser of Street Photographers Oxford. See your surroundings from a new angle! Check availability. Graham will be running an evening Digital Photography ‘crash course’ here in the Autumn (details available in July) so this is a good opportunity to work with him if you’re looking for further photography tuition.

Painting and drawing for beginners extended into summer

Due to popularity, we have extended Sarah Moncrieff’s art teaching on a Monday for another term. If you would like to join Painting and Drawing for Beginners, please contact us.

Check latest availability on weekday courses and Saturday workshops.

We still have room on some weekly courses running now including Monday and Thursday morning and Monday and Tuesday evening Yoga classes, Anyone Can Sing on Wednesday evenings, Tai Chi (Tuesdays) and Zumba Gold (Thursdays).

Our next Saturday one day workshops are on 18 May and include drawing with confidence, making skin creams and scrubs, and developing a home yoga practice.

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.
