Brockhurst and Marlston House offer service parents a unique choice.

We are rated outstanding by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (2018 – ‘Excellent’ in every category).  We offer our boys and girls all the benefits of small single sex classes for their academic lessons but they mix for all their social and extracurricular activities gaining the best of co-education, too.  We also combine the best of traditional values and modern teaching methods and place great emphasis on developing appropriate self-confidence, cheerful enthusiasm and good manners.

Welcome to Brockhurst and Marlston House.  We are a family run school and I am the fourth generation to be Headmaster. I think you will see that commitment to the welfare and success of the children reflected in everything we do and we shall make you most welcome if you would like to visit us and meet the children and staff.


At Brockhurst and Marlston House we have an exceptional site with outstanding facilities and 500 acres of beautiful countryside to grow up in and to explore.  We are truly a ‘country prep-school’.  And yet we are superbly located for service families just five minutes’ drive from the M4/A34 Newbury junction (J13).

In addition, we have a flourishing boarding community with a large dedicated team of staff living on-site who are committed to a great extracurricular programme.  We understand the armed services needs and have always had close links with the forces as a school.  This applies to our fee structure and our 15% forces bursary with an additional allowance for siblings reflects our commitment to supporting your children and enabling them to benefit from the best opportunities the Independent sector has to offer.
