Brockhurst and Marlston House Schools are a combination of two preparatory schools: Brockhurst for boys and Marlston House for girls. Brockhurst School was founded in 1884, and the Marlston House School was founded in 1995. Two schools are located on the same territory, but in different buildings.

Brockhurst and Marlston House Schools created a unique learning environment. Pupils at the preschool stage study together, then separately and only in the last two years of study will joint classes wait for them again. Such a system has a beneficial effect on the academic performance of children and does not deprive them of communication: boys and girls continue to attend sports and creative groups together.
