According to the current covid-19 roadmap, all UK restrictions on large events such as ours will be lifted in June, making us confident that our 2021 Open Minds course will go ahead as planned.

This is subject to change in accordance with government guidelines. As such, we will be as flexible as possible should your plans change and will be offering full refunds, including the deposit, on any cancellations up until 30 June 2021. We will also do our best to help students to meet any further travel restrictions that may be in place for those travelling from abroad.

Marlborough College Open Minds offers an excellent dining experience with a range of cuisines to suit the most discerning of palates and dietary requirements.

All meals are included in the course fee and are served in Norwood Hall (the main dining room). Meal times are a communal experience at Open Minds - students and staff attend all meals together, giving our students  a chance to chat with their friends about the day's activities and to clarify any doubts about the day's schedule with their teachers.

Religious Restrictions and Food Allergies

We offer a wide range of cuisines for those whose religion or beliefs restrict them from eating certain foods. This includes Halaal, Kosher, vegetarian and vegan diets.

We also cater for a wide variety of allergies such as gluten, dairy and nut intolerance. Please note that although every care is taken to adhere to dietary requirements involving nuts, we cannot guarantee that all our food will be totally nut free.

Tea and Coffee Breaks

Complimentary tea and coffee breaks are served at the following times:

Morning coffee 11am to 11.30 am

Afternoon tea 4.30pm to 5.00pm
