A very good school 

The Marlborough Science Academy is an 11-18 mixed comprehensive Academy committed to an inclusive education for all learners.


Marlborough Science Academy's aim is to provide an assessment system that is understood by students, staff and parents. This is so everyone can see how students are progressing. Assessment at Marlborough is based on the same scale throughout the school so that progress can be monitored across Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.  The scale is linked to the new GCSE 9-1 grade scale with the addition of Bronze, Silver and Gold at Key Stage 3.

All of our students have access to wonderful trips including China, India, France and Italy. There are extra-curricular clubs such as chess, cheerleading, Mandarin, Latin. reading clubs and of course many sports. The school look to improve and continue improving. All our students who leave post 16 education achieve their desired destinations and, in some areas, given personal choice and ambition, full time employment. We have developed strong links with the local business community and many of our students have gone on to study apprenticeships.
