About Our School

Situated in beautiful, spacious grounds on the edge of the Kentish village of Hawkhurst, Marlborough House is a thriving school for 3 to 13 year olds, consisting of a Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep school. We also offer flexi-boarding opportunities for pupils aged 8 and over.

Marlborough House is a happy school community where ‘Valuing Self and Others’ is at the heart of everything we do.  Everyone here receives a warm welcome; ours is a school where you will hear laughter, where “some children really do skip between lessons” (Good Schools Guide, July 2016) and where pupils, teachers and parents are known as individuals. Teachers and children work together to achieve the highest standards underpinned by the strong value system and growth mind-set, adopted from the outset by children and teachers alike.  Our beautiful 34 acres of grounds provide the perfect setting for sports matches and hugely successful Forest School programme – described by the Independent Schools Inspectorate as a ‘natural and inspiring focal point’ for reflection. 

At Marlborough House we look to balance the demand for class spaces with our promise to deliver a high quality education where the focus is still very much on the individual.  We are committed to employing and developing inspirational teachers who have passion, drive, and vision, but most importantly, the ability to bring their ideas to life and really make things happen.  

Our website www.marlboroughhouseschool.co.uk provides a great deal of useful  information about us and will give you a flavour of life at Marlborough House.
