Senior School Head of European Languages

(for August 2017)

Marlborough College Malaysia is a co-educational boarding and day school that opened in August 2012. The school is situated in 90 acres of the Iskandar region of Malaysia close to Singapore and Johor Bahru.

In 2017-2018, there will be a total of around 380 pupils across the five year groups that make up the Senior School (Years 9-13).

The campus also provides for pupils aged from 4 years old (Reception) up with the roll next year at around 850. Boarding operates in six Houses accommodating boys and girls in Years 5-8 and Years 9-13. Following our Phase II development, which will be completed by August 2017, the College will grow to a maximum capacity of 1200 pupils.

The school is not a franchise but a genuine expansion of Marlborough College in the UK and is managed and governed by people who have a strong association with Marlborough.

Most teaching staff live on campus in their first year and are expected to contribute towards the life of a full boarding school. Residential leadership roles may be available as Housemaster/Housemistress or Resident House Tutor for the right candidate. As a general expectation, all applicants should be prepared to participate in the co-curricular programme (including occasional weekends) and carry out a tutor duty once per week in the evening. IB Diploma pupils in Years 12 and 13 have timetabled lessons on a Saturday morning.

We are seeking a Head of European Languages as one of four teachers providing IGCSE and IB Diploma qualifications to pupils in Years 9 to 13. The successful applicant would teach Spanish across Years 9-13.

Interest or experience in the following could also be advantageous:

  • IB Diploma / IGCSE in another subject
  • Pastoral care of pupils, particularly in a boarding environment
  • A co-curricular passion, be it sport, outdoor education, the arts or service

Employment Package
In addition to base salary, the College offers an attractive package including accommodation and utilities, meals during term time, health insurance, school fee remission, reimbursement of flights every two years and reimbursement of shipping costs. Salary is taxable at Malaysian marginal tax rates and some benefits provided are deemed taxable as a benefit in kind.

There may be additional positions available in the Prep and Senior School later this year: teaching couples are encouraged to apply even if an exact combination of subjects is not advertised at this time.
