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.

Aerial Tour

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, our well-equipped sports hall, and the entrance to our impressive theatre.

Our sixth form areas include a common room with café and our sixth form library off a dedicated corridor on the top floor of the Atrium building, and also a separate sixth form block, with classrooms and a study centre.

Click below to begin your virtual tour of the Atrium and sixth form areas, and have a look into other key spaces including our theatre, library and sports hall. Click and drag on the 360° images to explore and use the hotspots or the hidden thumbnails at the bottom of the images to move between spaces.

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

We are proud of our well-equipped 350-seat Theatre, which is used throughout the year for assemblies, staff meetings, concerts and drama productions, exhibitions, exams, and PE. 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.

The library carries newspapers, magazines, journals and DVDs, while revision guides and stationery are also available to buy. Our friendly library staff are available at all times to help students with their research or to find a new book to enjoy.

Classrooms

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. Please note that our classrooms are currently laid out in a more formal style than usual due to social distancing requirements.

Food is available for purchase at our main Atrium restaurant and 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.
