Admission Arrangements

If you are interested in applying for a place at Marlborough School we strongly advise visiting the school. Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you make for your child and - quite apart from the information on these pages, inspection reports and league tables - you will want to know at first hand the ethos of the school, the manner in which its values are lived out and the strength of relationships that will support him or her throughout the primary years.

Marlborough is a community school and applications are administered centrally by Cornwall Council.  The Published Admission Number (the maximum we can take in each class) has been set at 30.

If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, you will need to apply for a place for September 2022.  The application window will close at midnight on 15 January 2022.  The Local Authority's Admissions Criteria can be downloaded by clicking the link below.  Further details of how the authority allocates places and the order of priority can be found in the Admissions booklet, also below, or accessed on the county website.
