The following statement has been received from Marlborough College about its response to the coronavirus pandemic:
“Marlborough College is moving to a ‘virtual school’ environment from 1pm on Wednesday, 18 March.
This decision will enable the College to continue to operate, given the increasing numbers of pupils and staff taking precautionary measures to self-isolate or to preempt further global travel restrictions, which is making it impossible for the College to provide effective full boarding 24/7 residential care.
The College will continue to deliver its timetabled academic lessons, pastoral support and co-curricular provision to pupils remotely, utilising a number of online platforms and delivery methods.
The College has no confirmed case of COVID-19 and the campus will not be closed. All members of staff will continue with their duties until the end of term.”
The College’s Lent Term ends officially on Friday, 27 March 2020.
