On behalf of the students, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to our school. Marlborough School is a split site secondary special school for 85 students with severe and complex needs in the London Borough of Bexley. Our site at Marlborough Park Avenue is for 60 students on our Orchard and Meadow pathway aged 11-19. Our Marlborough Legacy site is within the ground of Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School, and is for 25 students on our Legacy pathway aged 14-19.

We are very proud of our students’ achievements and are delighted to share these with our community.  We hope you enjoy exploring our site and looking at the range of events and learning that take place throughout the year.

We believe that every moment is a learning opportunity, and utilise a holistic approach to assessment and learning. Our aim is to deliver excellent outcomes for all of our students within the areas of intellectual, physical, social, creative, spiritual and emotional development. Our staff team are committed to providing a happy, safe, supportive and inclusive learning environment, rich in creativity, challenge and cultural development. 

We provide learning experiences that engage and inspire and are personalised to meet the individual needs of all our students. Our students are a real pleasure to teach and we are very proud of their successes. Please feel welcome to contact us if you would like any further information.

Kind regards
