Welcome Welcome to our Commemoration and Prize Day in its new format. My colleagues, Mr Nicholas and Mr Finlay, aided by a host of other contributors, have worked up another great programme. Whilst thanking them and all involved in the varied events and displays, the evidence that Marlborough is developing the whole person is clear. his programme showcases the holistic vision of the College. The day starts with our Commemoration Service. As we think of our founders and those who trod these paths before us, particularly recalling the approaching anniversary of the first day of the Battle of the Somme when 20 Marlburians fell, the Chapel remains at the forefront of proceedings.

T

The explanations of the attribution of our Prizes promotes the legacy of engagement with the spirit of service and also the will to give back to an institution which has nurtured Marlburians up to now, a line of ever deepening continuity. May everyone enjoy this day which is a snapshot of the academic year 2015/16. Particular good luck to another 204 pupils who move on from the Upper Sixth this summer. They are ready to step out into the wider world having learnt much at Marlborough and made lasting friendships. As we look ahead to 2018 so we are engaged in a project which will result in a major refurbishment of the Memorial Hall. This is an enterprise which can unite our community; past and present Marlburians, Common Room colleagues, Support Staff and, not least, parents whose wider interest in the school is so helpful.

The Prizes We wish to extend hearty congratulations to all of those pupils who have won prizes this year; to have done so is an achievement of which they can be rightly proud. Receiving these awards from the Master, in front of family and friends will, we hope, be an experience they will treasure, and which will spur them on to greater heights still. Success in any sphere rarely comes through talent alone. To stand out from the crowd, hard work and the correct attitude are also needed. As Tim Notke rather colloquially put it: “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”. These awards are a recognition, therefore, not just of ability, but also the graft and resilience displayed by so many of our pupils over the last year. We are proud of them. Jaideep Barot Deputy Head (Academic)
