Ghislaine Maxwell in Jeffrey Epstein trial went to Marlborough College
Ghislaine Maxwell, currently on trial in New York accused of grooming teenage girls to be abused by the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, was known as a “granny” when she was a student at Marlborough College.
The 59-year-old socialite who denies all the charges against her, attended the prestigious school in the late seventies.
Ms Maxwell went to Marlborough College for her A-level education, studying Languages and Modern History as a sixth form.
Marlborough was the fourth school she attended. Her early years of schooling were at Oxford High School for Girls in North Oxford. At the age of nine she went to Edgarley Hall boarding school in Somerset, but was back in Oxford at 13 to attend Headington Girls’ School, where she was ‘very athletic at tennis, hockey and athleticism”.
Ms Maxwell continued her enthusiasm for the sport at £40,000-a-year Marlborough College, where she reportedly played midfield football for a girls’ team known as The Grannies.
After her A-Levels at Marlborough, she joined her father’s Pergamon Press in Headington, “doing everything from typing to managing congresses”.
Ms Maxwell, who has British, American and French nationality, has been in a US prison since her arrest last year. She faces up to 80 years in prison if convicted.
