The College

Marlborough College Malaysia opened in 2012 and is a British day and boarding school for pupils aged 3-18 years. We live and work in a safe and spacious 90-acre campus in southern Malaysia, reminiscent of the generous grounds and playing fields of Marlborough College in the UK. Guided by our principles of compassion, companionship and conversation, Marlborough College Malaysia gives its boys and girls the space, inspiration and courage to explore their own potential, the wonders of our world and their responsibilities to it and to each other.

The College is arranged in a Prep School (3-13) and a Senior School (14-18) and it currently has 935 pupils, around 530 of whom are in the Prep and 140 of whom are in the Sixth Form. Pupils from the age of nine may choose to board and approximately a third of those who are eligible do so, with almost half of the Senior School and most of the Sixth Form boarding.

While very British in ethos and with a Common Room largely drawn from some of the UK’s leading schools, the College is also truly international, celebrating diversity and a global outlook with children representing over 45 nationalities. Around half of our pupils are from expatriate families.

Head of Sixth Form

The Master seeks to appoint an outstanding applicant as Head of Sixth Form. The successful candidate will be responsible for the continuing development of a thriving, successful, distinctive and globally aware Sixth Form experience.

The role has pastoral, academic and marketing elements and includes responsibility for developing the use of the School’s assets for the Sixth Form and line managing and working collaboratively with staff in charge of University Guidance and the IBDP as a core Sixth Form team. The role will also involve working closely with members of Housemasters and Housemistresses. It is therefore likely to involve significant strategic, as well as operational responsibility, alongside project management.
