We are very excited about our new school which will open in September 2017. The new school will be spacious and light and generously resourced. It will have state of the art facilities including outdoor learning spaces, two large hall spaces, a community room, a dance studio, a creative media suite, an art and design studio and a multi-use games area on the roof. Marlborough will also have its own specialist autism provision.
We welcome visits to our interim school on Draycott Avenue. We hold regular open mornings as well as tours during term time on a Tuesday.
We would love you to be part of Marlborough Primary School!
Find out what’s proposed for Marlborough Primary School and the Clearings
01 February 2013
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and John Lewis are holding a second round of public exhibitions in early February to show the local community how proposals to rebuild Marlborough Primary School and redevelop the Clearings site on Draycott Avenue SW3 are progressing.
The Royal Borough and John Lewis believe that there is an opportunity for John Lewis to make a meaningful contribution to the local community by building a brand new school and allowing the Clearings site to be used as a high quality interim school during the construction process, before the Clearings site itself is redeveloped.
The Royal Borough and John Lewis are committed to consulting with the local community and held an initial set of joint public exhibitions on the development proposals in December 2012. The exhibitions were well attended by local residents and parents who gave valuable feedback on the proposals.
Public exhibitions will be held at the Clearings site and Marlborough Primary School.
The exhibition at Clearings will take place on the following days:
Thursday 7 February – 9am to 8pm
Friday 8 February – 9am to 8pm
Saturday 9 February – 10am to 6pm
An exhibition at Marlborough school will take place on Thursday 7 February between 4pm and 6pm.

In November 2012 the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and John Lewis announced proposals to develop two closely related sites in the heart of Chelsea – Marlborough Primary School and the Clearings site on Draycott Avenue SW3. The proposals offer the chance to build an entirely new school to replace the current Victorian buildings. The new Marlborough Primary will offer state-of-the-art facilities and more space to accommodate the growing demand for places.
During construction, the nearby Clearings site will accommodate a high quality interim school. Once the new school is complete, the Clearings site will then be redeveloped for residential use. Councillor Elizabeth Campbell, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “This is a once in a generation chance to provide a fantastic new school, with more space and better facilities. I am sure the pupils, staff and indeed residents of the area will all benefit from the opportunities this presents.”
