Welcome to St John’s Marlborough

Using the menu tabs, you can virtually visit many areas within St John’s. We recommend you start by viewing our aerial tour, to see St John’s in its impressive landscape, then head to our atrium, which leads to other areas of the school. We have also set up visits to different departments and classrooms. We hope you enjoy using our 360° images to explore St John’s.

You can click and drag on a 360° image to look around a room, follow the maps, and use the hotspots or the dots and side arrows to move between images. A floor plan of the school may be downloaded using one of the links below.

Thank you to the ex-St John’s students who helped to create our virtual open evening: Izzy Millar for the drone footage and Matt Withers and Tash Reed for photography.

Drone footage recorded in September 2023 by Izzy Millar.

As you walk into St John’s through the main doors you enter our stunning Atrium, the heart of St John’s, where students gather to socialise and eat. From here, you have a clear view of our award-winning library, well-equipped sports hall, and can enter the impressive theatre. We use our Atrium for art and design shows and other events throughout the year.

Tour the Atrium and restaurant in the slide show below and have a look into other key spaces including our theatre, library and sports hall.

St John’s serves over 250 square miles of North East Wiltshire, and many students travel to St John’s on school buses that drop off and pick up in the main car park. Students walking into school will come in from the Orchard Road entrance. For more information about school transport visit our Transport webpage.

Sixth formers may choose to drive themselves to school, once they are able, and St John’s provides a limited number of parking spaces available to those students. Before you drive yourself to school, you’ll need to apply for parking permission.

Theatre on the Hill

The room has comfortable retractable seating, making the space extremely flexible. A variety of professional lighting and sound equipment is available for productions and concerts.

Our architects designed St John’s to allow the beautiful countryside around Marlborough to be visible as much as possible, and also created inspiring views within the school. Classrooms are designated by subject and our students move from room to room between lessons. Take a look around some of our subject classrooms.

As you walk into St John’s through the main doors you enter our stunning Atrium, the heart of St John’s, where students gather to socialise and eat. Food is available for purchase by all students at our main Atrium restaurant and also at the new outdoor “pod”. The Sixth Form has its own café in the Sixth Form Common Room.

We use a biometric system which enables parents to easily add funds to student accounts, and to keep track of what students are purchasing.

Outdoor Spaces

In the same way that our classrooms were designed to maximise light, and benefit from the beautiful views, the outdoor spaces were also carefully designed to enhance our students’ experience. In addition to being popular social spaces for students to meet and eat, our outside areas are regularly used for teaching, sport, and drama productions.
