Admissions and Visits

Marlborough is a two-form entry primary school with up to 60 places available in each year group. The fabulous state of the art facilities at Marlborough Primary School opened on 11th September 2017. We have full time nursery with 30 places. Our school is increasingly popular and places are filling fast.

We manage our own admissions to the nursery. If you wish to make an application for your child to attend our nursery class please contact the school office on 020 7589 8553 or email us here. Parents of children attending the nursery class at a school must reapply for a reception class place. As in all state school’s there is no automatic transfer from the nursery class to the reception class.

Marlborough Primary School admits pupils from Reception to Year 6 in accordance with the admissions criteria of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Local Education Authority.

All admissions are conducted through the local authority. You can contact the Admissions team on 020 7745 6432/36433/6434 or email here.

Sadly, we are unable to conduct school visits due to Covid. In the meantime, if you are considering the school for your child you are invited to contact the office to book in for a Q & A session with the Executive Head.

Marlborough is an inclusive school and we welcome all families and children.  We usually encourage prospective parents to come and visit the school prior to any application being made. This is being replaced by an online meeting with the Executive Head. Please contact the office to arrange a meeting.

All new parents are  invited to meet a member of the senior leadership team online before their children are admitted to the school.
