Marlburian Club Committee

The Marlburian Club is the alumni organisation for former pupils of Marlborough College and was founded in 1884 as a means to “support and connect the Old Marlburian community throughout their lives”.  Today, the Club is made up of over 13,000 Old Marlburians (OMs) and parents spread across 96 countries and is increasingly involving parents of current Marlburians, too.

The Marlburian Club Committee helps to inspire other Old Marlburians to value their connection to the Club, the wider Marlburian Community and College and to ensure that all members benefit from the services offered by the Club. The Club Constitution and Rules are the Club’s foundation, but the Committee annually agree objectives to ensure that the Club team meet the needs and expectations of Club Members.
