A record-breaking day for Marlborough

Thursday 30th March 2023

On Wednesday 19th April, the Marlborough Difference Campaign for life-changing bursaries launched with a special Launch Day. In just 36 hours, over 1,000 parents, OMs, staff, pupils and friends chose to support the Campaign and, together, we raised an astonishing £1,326,119. This is a record-breaking amount, not just for Marlborough but for any independent school in the UK.

In Court, pupils, led by the Charity Committee and House teams, ran a full afternoon of activities, including a huge variety of stalls and challenges, made all the more exciting when all online donations were doubled by a very generous donor. 

It was an amazing day with a fantastic atmosphere and we are incredibly grateful to every member of our community, on campus and afar who took part and contributed to raising such a fantastic sum of money to help increase the number of free places at Marlborough.

Thanks to you and the incredible support shown by the Marlburian Community, we are thrilled to announce that the money raised on Launch Day has endowed a free place at Marlborough forever. This will enable generations of talented and motivated young people from disadvantaged backgrounds a life-changing Marlborough education.
