The Marlborough Secondary Modern ex pupils website.

The School opened in 1946, in huts on Marlborough Common, to serve the Town and Villages of the upper Kennet Valley. In 1965 the School moved to a purpose built School in Chopping Knife Lane to the South East of the Town. This site is dedicated to all those who went to the "Common" and endured and enjoyed life in the Huts.
