The skills of Leadership are able to be taught through a well-designed educational programme.

The general approach to the teaching of Leadership skills at Marlborough Boys’ College will be to move the boys along a continuum from being dependent on the external enforcing of rules through having the skills and knowledge to take responsibility for their own behaviour to having the skills, personal attributes and knowledge necessary to enable them to positively influence others.
